From the description that sounds like a few of the other cases reported here where the fluid leaked out of the gearbox and damaged the clutch plates. That is a manufacturing defect more than likely, and doesn't seem to be all that common fortunately. It was good that it was detected and fixed properly this time however, unlike the previous and lazy dealer who just said eh its normal.
