Subject: 900 Turbo - constant whine

Hi. I recently bought my first Saab, a 1990 900 Turbo (beryl green!) I've been hearing a constant whine coming from the somewhere in the back of the car, much more noticeable with the rear seats folded down. It doesn't vary with RPM or boost, although very occasionally it goes up a note in pitch for just a moment -- possibly with the load of the fan coming on? It starts a few seconds after I start the car. Is this the normal Saab "turbo whine," or should I be worried about belts and/or pulleys, or is it something completely different? Thanks
