This rings a distant bell in what passes for my memory. My car used to
do this about 20 years ago. If I remember correctly it was oil on the
face on the clutch that caused this. I would have to occasionally spray
carb or brake cleaner on it to make it stop. I've installed  a new
clutch and pressure plate since then and haven't had any problems since.
Good luck!
