Rear end leak after TSB

I had the TSB done on my rear end (rim shot....just for you chicken!) this last summer and it's leaking again. I have a spot on the garage floor that is 4"x4" and its all over the undercarraige. Should I be concerned? I've noticed the rear end has felt a little odd lately...almost like it's shifting front to back when I accelerate. The fluid is coming out of the vent tube. In it's defense, I drove on freeway, and put it in the garage. It's been very cold here. Should I take it in and pay them $100 to diag?

Seeing as how this is only from a month or so back, I'm curious how you made out with the leak?

I have had both the fluild changed with the additive and the vent tube extended, and it still leaks. (I'm getting ready to check the fluid to see if they overfilled mine).
Axle seals are also known to leak.
I should have clarified. My vent tube is still leaking...which is why I was asking about Ghost's case since his was vent tube related if I read correctly.

Also why I was thinking it was overfilled by the dealer, since I slid under the car and saw it was coming from the vent tube.
I hear ya on the nasty weather. I don't have any other options for transportation so I'm stuck driving the Solstice in the snow. Please keep me posted on this if you can, because I'm following basically the same path you have. Mine leaked after the TSB, and I just pulled the plug myself and confirmed it was overfilled. Upon pulling the plug, it hissed just the slightest (I heard others confirm their's did too) and it started trickling out. And the car had cooled off.

Sorry to hear about the commute and hope to hear if you still have leaks!
