True, but it's been happening when they have seal leaking issues... I'm not quite sure how they're related, though. Does the leaking fluid get into/on the clutch and ruin it that way? Whatever it is, the TSB calls for new seals and clutches (as well as the adaptive learning cycle) when there is transmission fluid leaking from the seal.
