What's going on; in the dim recess of my aging brain I seem to remember that this is a sign of overcharging?
No other symptoms.

If you have access to a good / calibrated DVM, check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. IT should be 14.1 - 14.7. What you describe is often overlooked as overcharging. This was more common up thru the mid '70's when many vehicles still used a relay based regulator, but I have come across it on internally regulated alternators as Subaru uses.
Just a thought.
