Some have claimed that the motor squeak can be eliminated by cleaning of the motor sliding ring parts.  Is there any validity to this idea?

The squeak on my 17-35mm f/2.8D AF-S Nikkor tends to disappear after usage.  Out of the camera bag after a period of not being used the squeak has returned.  A PITA.
