OK, now you're scaring me. I noticed this exact same phenomenon this
morning on the way to work. I haven't even started looking for causes
yet, but the first thing that popped into my mind was indeed turbulence
in the carb air flow. I have done no maintenance at all yet.

This, of course, is not necessarily a bad thing. ;-)
