I just noticed a few specs of what appears to be rust on the golden dock contacts of the 3DS, I tried wiping them off but to no avail. I've never exposed the handheld to moisture of any kind, anyone else experiencing something similar?

Wow i wouldn't expect the contacts to rust so fast but since its not wiping off you may want to try something mildly abrasive to remove the rust. also if your worried about scratching anything be sure to mask those places off with masking tape first.

Perhaps your case is due to high humidity? I always place my 3DS in an air conditioned room so no humid problems...

Nope, I always keep it in a dry place, and to top it all off, I've only used the charging cradle once.

Sorry, I don't have a camera at my disposal, but like I said, it looks just like rust to me. There are little orange spots on the cradle contacts, one on the left contact and three on the right one. They are barely noticeable, but they're definitely there, and can be clearly seen under certain lighting.
