Calvin's tranny whining symptom might be "typical", but since it's 
even more typical for the tranny not to fail, I for one don't know 
exactly what to listen for.

Calvin, can you describe the noise? Did it happen under applied 
throttle, or off-throttle? Both?  My tranny has started making a 
faint scraping "gear noise" but _only_ while  coasting off-throttle 
(engine braking).  I wouldn't call it "whining". More like the kind 
of sound  the brake dust shield makes when it's lightly scraped by 
the rotor.

It's I who's whining. I'd like my tranny noise to stop.  :-(
