What might cause the oil pressure to drop below 10 psi at idle when the engine is warmed up or "really warm"? Is that a concern? Is there a solution? Thanks. My 1915 / 135 hp with 4-5k mile motor does just that. I'm running Valvalene synthetic.

Sounds like normal to me although you may be running oil that is too thin. What visocsity oil? Is the viscosity within the receommended range from VW?
