Ah, I suspect that is due to the base not allowing the bulb to fully screw in. This can happen with CF bulbs too; I've had the same with Christmas lighting with the new CF floodlights not going into older fixtures.
Don't force it, the socket will likely crack and shatter. Return the bulb if you can, for this reason. Take the fixture to the hardware store and try the CF bulbs I mentioned previously. Some are made with a narrower base.
