Subtle X Layer Shift that Corrects Itself After a Few Layers

I'm having the same subtle layer shift on the x axis.  The layer shift happens on the first ten layers or so, and then seems to correct itself.  I've tried tightening and lubricating the x axis.  Normally such a tiny shift wouldn't be a problem, but I'm printing pieces that have to go together, and so it's more important.  Pictures attached-- I'd appreciate any insight.

 

Thanks so much!

It's hard to tell from the pictures since I'm not sure what the objects should look like. Anyway, check the grub screw(s) on the gear attached to the motor shaft for the axis that is having problems. Make sure it's engaging with the flat spot on the shaft and not slipping.
