I've not had a rear main leak impact the clutch at all as far as I can tell.  The oil seems to run down the back of the engine as opposed to getting into the bell housing.  Maybe somebody else can explain this as the reason is lost on me!

Yes I experienced the same thing. My rear main had been leaking for long before I purchased it. Then it was pouring after I attempted to to correct the problem. The oil was dropping down the back of the block,  never made it to the bell housing drain. Never had a clutch problem.
