Oil in spark plug wells (1999 / 2.2) <---cause ??

Anyone know the cause of this, and what can be done to stop this oil leak ??
This problem was not evident when I changed the spark plugs for the first time at about 40,000 miles. I have an extended warranty plan which will pay for the repair if I can isolate the cause & the dealership will back me up on this as being a serious problem which can only get worse.

Did I mention that the spark plug holes go through the valve covers. I looked in my Subaru factory supplement manual, and Subaru calls this defective part the "spark plug pipe gasket" The local Subaru stealership wants $195. to do both sides.
On the 2.2 the plugs don't go through the valve cover, so the leak is probably your valve cover gasket.
