I have a late '04 roadster and experirnce the same thing, a subtle creaking sound that appears to be coming from just behind the seats. I also heard other interior rattles, one from the passenger seat and another from the driver's side door panel. I will have these addressed next time the car is in for it's next scheduled oil change.

I know on some vehicles it could actually be the unibody. What I mean by this is whenver you get a chance, look at some of your unibody seams, not the entire seam is welded. There is a small possibility where it flexes and it just rubs against each other. *long shot*

I have some interior rattles but its more of an annoyance than anything.

Unibody's on most cars tend to creak when flexed, its natural. Also, the stress on the body would be greatest when going over a bump at an angle, of course this stress is minimal and your not hurting a thing by going over the bump at an angle.
