The leak down by the clutch slave was a bad o-ring (or gasket) on the neutral sensor (so i've been told by the dealership).
I had the same two issues with my 2010 990 and both were covered by my dealer under warranty. My clutch master cylinder's gasket (for the cover) had a small bubble that was formed in it during the manufacturing (we supposed) and once it was crushed some under pressure the bubble allowed small drips of oil to leak out the back side (which meant I didn't see it right away). Sounds like yours was the same sort of thing.

The neutral sensor o-ring seal was simply replaced the first time I took it in for its required service (to maintain my warranty) so that never was an issue for me.
