	Hmm ... I have what I could call a rattle, but only for a very
	narrow rpm range (somewhere between 2K and 3K, I'd guess). Doesn't
	sound too serious (not a death-rattle, hopefully:-)) -- almost as if
	some loose part was resonating. I tried briefly to locate it, but
	without success.

	Is this the rattle in question?
