Driving at night, odometer LED flashes lightly..alt?

I was driving my '03 ZTS around the other night. I was stopped at a light and noticed the odometer backlight was dimming when the idle would "spudder" ever so slightly. It is like a very slight, dim light flash that goes in and out with idle.

I just replaced the battery about 4 weeks ago, so I know that isn't the issue.

Any ideas? Alternators known for going bad and causing this as they degrade?
