[DML] vibrating speedometer?

I have noticed that my speedometer needle will rhythmically go up and down  
within about 2 mph anywhere from 5mph to 30 mph.  After you go faster than  
35mph, the needle is steady, but below 30 mph, it will move up and down as if  
the speedo cable was binding.  
I replaced my lower speedo cable this spring after my old one (which was  the 
car's 2nd cable) had began vibrating wildly accompanied by a clicking sound  
before it unravelled inside its sheath.  This newest one was smooth as  butter 
for a couple days but all spring has been showing a tendency to wiggle at  
low speed but there are no odd noises.  This week I pulled the lower cable  off 
for inspection and it is still undamaged and doing fine.  
When I replaced the cable this spring, I checked the angle drive (hardcore  
grady unit) and it was good, and I also inspected the gears of the lambda  
counter - they were well lubricated and moving freely. 
Should I be worried about my speedo?  Not sure if this is normal or  not.  
Like I said, the amount of 'wiggle' is only a couple mph but just  seems like it 
is sloppy.
