REsolved: windshield wipers go in intermittent mode on their own

Spent some time googling the Audifans archives and found some info about
spraying electronic parts cleaner in the wiper stalk/switch.  This seems to
have cured the issue.

Subject: windshield wipers go in intermittent mode on their own

Patient is a 1990 V8q.  Was driving it the other day and about 5-10 minutes
into the trip, the windshield wipers made a swipe and a little later another
and so on.  
I moved the stalk through all the positions, restarted the car, and swapped
the intermittent relay, but it still has the same problem.
Any input is much appreciated.
