Re: 'like the theory but why don't string manufacturers compensate for this ?' - it's the main reason for having compensated bridges! Some string manufacturers do try to minimise the effect by adjusting the core size versus the wrapping weight of the string; Malcolm Newton is one such at Newtone strings. His strings are pretty much hand made, and may well solve your problem. If not, it's probably set-up time. One recommendation here; get it done by a professional.
