i switched out the rear wheel to an older Chorus/Open-Pro wheel, and all of a sudden, thought that the rear triangle was out of alignment!
i flipped the rear wheel around in the dropouts to check and make sure.
then i realized that the rear hub OLD was slightly too narrow, and was shifting side to side in the dropouts.

then i got the bright idea to do the "string around the headtube, to the rear dropouts" test, just for giggles.
well, now i've discovered that there is a 5mm discrepancy at the seat tube, with the larger gap on the NDS.

is this something to be concerned about? should i take it somewhere that has a frame jig, and see what they say?
as far as i can tell, the bike rides fine.
but maybe its the reason i only get 18 minutes on the local hill climb, instead of 12:30?
