Weird sounding gut string

Just put La Bella gut G and D on my Engelhardt. Never used gut before. The G sounds great, but the D has a weird overtone when plucked open or fingered. I've had Helicores and Thomastik nylon cores on in the past and have not had a problem. I widened the slot at the nut and at the bridge in case I was not getting good contact there, but the overtone remains. Is this just a funky string? Is it the sound post position? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, especially if anyone can recommend things I can check and work on myself--the repair tech in my area is good but SLOW.... Thanks.
