Alternator problems

Anytime I start my car, the voltmeter shows the car is running on the battery.  If I rev up the motor a bit, the alternator will kick in.  From then on, it works perfectly.  The problem is not the belt slipping.  This recently started a couple of weeks ago.  The alternator is a 4 month old bosch rebuilt on a 89 200TQ.  Anyone have a clue what's wrong?
