Update to my original post above, I found that trickle charging the battery @ 2 amps for a day or two gets it to a charge level where this does not happen anymore. I think the internal software model is such that it is not accurate WRT charge state of an older battery in fall/winter and it gets into this loop of not charging enough while running.

Before getting a new battery and all the headaches that entails (reprogramming ECU) I'd try giving it an overnight trickle charge or two, thru the under hood posts as above is fine.
