    yes, I have had a problem, I thought it was the crank shaft seal leaking, and after I got the clutch and the hydro pulley off, I realized it was the oil filter leaking on to the bar that held the clutch inplace, and making it look like it was coming from the clutch.

    it seems that the oil filter had vibrated very loose for some reason. and yes, I do run my finger around the seal with oil.
