I've seen this too. I also know that some of the oddest/worst rust I ever saw on a car was from one that was supposedly stored in a garage that was set up like this.

The rust was in all sorts of unusual places, and was very strange looking, like it had grown in a hurry.

I don't know for sure if the moist air was to blame or if there was something else going on, but sure would make me think twice about venting a dryer this way.
