I haven't had that particular problem, however if it is in fact leaking from the sensor, then you can bank on it being crossthreaded or similar. You can buy liquid thread sealant, and assuming the sensor can be removed and reinstalled without issue, that could solve your problem.

 

e.g. http://www.permatex.com/products-2/product-categories/thread-compounds/thread-sealants/permatex-high-temperature-thread-sealant-detail

 

Obviously drain the gearbox oil first, lest you make my recent careless mistake... jacked the car up from the front instead of the back (was half-asleep) to quickly swap the speed sensor, made a mess.
