Leaking rear main seal right after 105K service.

(2005 Acura TL)
in Denver, CO on January 10, 2013
Had not a spot on my garage floor prior to service. Now have decent size leak. Could changing the engine mounts (or removing one to get to the belts easier) put a stress on the rear main seal (if engine was jacked up too much or allowed to drop too much)?

IT COULD BE SERVERAL ISSUES IF PROPER CARE WAS NOT TAKEN WHEN SUPPORTING ENG DURING PREVIOUS WORK. I WOULD GET A 2ND OPINION ON LEAK TO VERIFY ITS REAR MAIN SEAL. SOME LEAKS APPEAR TO BE REAR MAIN BUT COULD BE FROM ABOVE. IF THEY SAY SOMETHING DIFF YOU CAN RETURN TO PREVIOUS REPAIR SHOP AND ASK QUESTIONS

It was the shop that did the 105K service that found the rear main seal leak after I brought it back.
