It must be something with 460 / C6 combo's in XB coupes, mine does exactly the same thing!!
At first I thought it was the pan seal. I replaced it with a new rubber unit, but it still lieaks when sitting still! (I'm spewing I didn't weld a drain bung in the pan when I had it off the first time)
I suspect that it leaks though the pan bolts. ie: If the bolt holes are not blind / captive holes in the casting and they actually protrude into the liquid area, I suspect it leaks down the threads of the bolts???? I can't see any other way. I clean the tranny, drive it, park it. Re-inspect a few days later and there's fluid all round the pan.
BTW. I put 10mm spacers under my sway bar mounts to get the clearance to the sump and use pedders springs / shocks successfully.
