[Vwdiesel] Is it weird oil pressure?

Interestingly enough, when I examined the oil pump for wear, I also checked 
the mains.  They looked almost new.  The crank was pristine, and when rotating 
the crank by hand there seemed to be zero play in the rods.  I will try 
running it sans turbo and see if it is related to load, or just boost.  I understand 
that boost is related to load, but once max boost is reached, oil pressure 
climbs with rpm despite load.  If accelerating on the flat, and max boost is 
reached, oil pressure climbs even as one continues to accelerate up a hill 
following the flat.  If just related to load, oil pressure would seem to continue to 
drop when reaching the hill.  The drop is also directly proportional to the 
amount of boost, certainly not an on off situation.
Still the big question:  Can someone with a gauge reading from the head port 
on a TD please tell me if their oil pressure behaves similarly? or is mine
