I am going to be absolutely livid if my dealer gives me the same answer some of you have received.
According to the TSB, a "genuine" oil leak (the fluid is slick and not sticky) gets you a new clutch assembly and new seals, no questions asked.

Judging from your picture, you clearly seem to have an oil leak.

Please let us know what happens.
