Hm. It might actually be a velar eggressive airstream
now that I check really close. When I hold my hand in
front of my mouth I can't feel any air, but that's
probably because the airstream is so small (or whatever
airstreams are).

Of course, I don't have to have my mouth open when I
do this sound, so that points in the direction of some
non-pulmonic airflow.

This is getting a bit offtopic by now... :)
