" I still have weeping from the gasket itself, but that's been weeping for the past 9000 miles or so"

What does this mean? It leaks on that seam elsewhere?

Glad you gooped up the threads, should fix it.

Yep: weeps from a portion of the seam, and has for a good three years or so at this point. Nothing serious, but the seal is compromised such that I can see and wipe up a trace amount of gear oil after even a relatively brief ride. The newly developed leak that I was more concerned about was the one pictured in my original post, which was coming from the fastener.
