Youi may be able to solve this problem by adjusting the chain length.
Does it occur with the chain on on one chainring more than another?
If more on the smallest chainring, the chain is too long (but you
still need to leave it long enough for large-large combination) --
and vice versa.
You could try removing the rear derailer and screwing the B-tension
screw backwards as Geof Gee suggested, so the head rests on the stop.
Otherwise you need to get either a smaller cassette or a rear
derailleur with more capacity.
