Why is my D700 such a @#$%^&*(! dust magnet?

I don't know if it's me having bad lens changing habits or if it's a characteristic of the D700, but I seem to have really serious problems with dust spots all the time on my D700. I've had the sensor cleaned twice in the past year at $100 a pop and the sensor is again quite dirty. I am very conservative about when I interchange my lenses (a 17-35 and 28-70), trying to avoid open areas, windy conditions, etc., and I have the camera programmed to do a sensor cleaning on startup and shutdown. I also do a double clean manually immediately after I change lenses and i use my Giotto frequently as well, but it seems that I spend an inordinate amount of time cleaning up my images in post processing. Is anyone else having issues like this, or am I an unwitting slob when it comes to my changing techniques?

Thanks,
Russ

The trick is not to make lemonade when life hands you lemons. The trick is to find the person life has handed vodka to and then have a party.
