Grinder sparks in rear window?

I just got my windows tinted in my BA ute that was a demo model when I bought it. Except when I got the tint put on, it has highlighted what looks to be sparks from a grinder (according to the tint guy). The tint guy said he normally sees this sort of thing in older cars where people have cut holes for new speakers with a grinder. Now I havent taken a grinder to my ute, and there is no evidence of a grinder being used in the cab so I am thinkin that it must have happened at the ford factory.

Any ideas how this could have happened? Do you think that I would be able to get the window replaced under warranty? Or am I up a certain creek?

Nothing hurt by asking your dealer nicely, let him have a look at it and he may replace it under warranty

Nah, fairly sure its not the tint. It is in one main patch about 10cm by 10cm and then here and there over the whole window in a pattern that looks consistent with sparks from a grinder or something. If you look close you can actually see little metal filings in the glass.
Plus I have had the same tint installed on another car and was quite happy with the job.
