Transmission leaks after sitting

My T400 has developed a leak, its always one thing after another. One thing that I do not do myself is transmissions, but I was told that the 400 as well as others can leak after they have not been driven enough??? I am ready to yank it out because I was thinking pump seal. Until I was told that the converter can drain back and cause excessive fluid in the pan, thus basically overflows.

I spoke to the interior shop the other day and asked if there was any fluid on the ground, and he said it was minimal. There again, it has not been driven. The car has never really been put on the road and broken in yet.

The fluid could be coming from the pan and running forward do to the cars forward rake, but I think it is coming from the pump seal. Waht do you think. I guess I am just preparing myself for the worst. It is a really pain to pull it out of that car.
