Power Steering Pump ?\'s

Last week the CJ developed a low, intermittent vibrating noise. It could best be described as the same sound that is made when the tailpipe rubs on the rear tire. Anyway, my steering box has been leaking, and i believe i drove the Jeep with the steering fluid low. The noise comes and goes, and is more noticable when the Jeep is cold. It goes away as I drive it. I also noticed that when it occurs, it doesn't go away in nuetral, and if I move the steering wheel a bit, it goes away. Would a bad steering pump have symptoms like this?
