[c-nsp] Output Drops

I've got a problem with output drops and I can't quite figure out what 
the issue is.  I am running 12.2.29 on a 7505.  Here is the config for 
the relevant interface:

interface Serial1/0/0:13
  ip address x.x.x.1
  service-policy output CUSTOMER-MAP
  encapsulation ppp

class-map match-all CUSTOMER
   match access-group name ToCustomer
   match ip precedence 5

policy-map CUSTOMER-MAP
   class CUSTOMER
     priority 512
   class class-default

Basically, we are matching IP Prec 5 and a specific IP on the 
access-list for priority of voice.  The customer is complaining about 
quality issues every now and then.  When I check the inteface, I am 
seeing output drops even though there is a small amount of traffic.  The 
output below shows 40 packets dropped in 7 minutes.  I have a graph of 
utilization that updates every 30 seconds and it is never above 500kbps. 
  The 5-min average is ~115,000 bps.

7505#sh int Serial1/0/0:13

7505#sh pol int Serial1/0/0:13

   Service-policy output: CUSTOMER-MAP

     queue stats for all priority classes:
       queue size 0, queue limit 128
       packets output 34124, packet drops 0
       tail/random drops 0, no buffer drops 0, other drops 0

     Class-map: CUSTOMER (match-all)
       34124 packets, 2183936 bytes
       5 minute offered rate 48000 bps, drop rate 0 bps
       Match: access-group name ToCustomer
       Match: ip precedence 5
       Priority: kbps 512, burst bytes 12800, b/w exceed drops: 0

     Class-map: class-default (match-any)
       11127 packets, 10132207 bytes
       5 minute offered rate 88000 bps, drop rate 0 bps
       Match: any
       queue size 0, queue limit 256
       packets output 11171, packet drops 0
       tail/random drops 0, no buffer drops 0, other drops 0
       Fair-queue: per-flow queue limit 64

The policy doesn't show any drops due to bandwidth and the interface 
isn't going down, so what is causing the drops?  Is there some other 
commands I can use to try and figure that out?  Or does this sound like 
a bug?  We've been running this version for ~ 40 weeks and they just 
started complaining in the last 2-3 weeks.
