Noise in Record Shifter GoneDog

A few weeks ago I posted about a rattling noise in my Record 10 shifter, left side. It developed a rattling when on the small ring, but went away with a half click to put some tension on the derailleur cable.

While cleaning my bike, I found that the front derailleur cable had come out of the little channel in the guide under the bottom bracket. I put it back where it belongs, and the rattling is gone. Whaddyaknow. I'm guessing that the cable was hanging up a little and not sliding correctly, thus not keeping the tension constant on the cable.

Anyway, it's a quirky thing, but FYI just in case someone encounters something similar.
