Interval buzz?

    I just found that my bass will give this buzz only when I am playing the E string's 7th fret B with any easily reachable D. Its only the double stops that make this buzz, the B is fine by its self as are the D's. No other B notes cause this buzzing either, and I know I'm holding the string down well enough when I go for double stops too. What could possibly be going on here?

    I set it up myself, it took some trial and error but it seems good aside from this little phenomenon.

    I thought I'd follow this up with what I found out a couple of weeks ago. Its all related to resonance, when my E-string is held down at the 7th fret the note that occurs between the 6th fret and the nut is a D and it vibrates around the 5th and 4th fret.

    Basically I just need a fret leveling.
