Here is the way i see this, When GM mixed the reservoir's what they for got is that on the clutch side we move the pedal faster then the brake's side, that makes the fluid return faster then the brake fluid, With them using a cap made for a brake reservoir that is made to be open to the air that is why it leak's, the clutch reservoir is a thread on cap so its made to keep Fluid in.
