1986 944 Turbo Cam Housing Gasket Leak

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5 stock turbo; Total Mileage: 172,000;

I have just repaired a oil leak in the Cam housing gasket. Upon inspection of the old gasket there was a tear near one of the bolts on the exhaust side of the engine. The tear was about three quarters of a inch long running down the side of the oil journal, between one and two cylinders. Now that Ive replaced the gasket the leak has stopped. Only recently now less than two weeks after the repair it is now leaking from the same area of the valve housing gasket. Is this common?
