Default 00 Lesabre Transmission Fluid leak

Just re-installed tranny 3 weeks ago after it was rebuilt. When I got home today I noticed some dripping on the pavement under the car. When i looked saw it was tranny fluid. Looking for the source I found a small puddle of fluid sitting on top of the housing just under and to the side of the Throttle Body, and it was running down the drivers side of the transmission over the side cover. What could cause a leak on top of the tranny...it appears all side cover bolts are torqued properly, as is the pan gasket bolts on the bottom......
