Bummer Bob, but its not too unusual. There have been posts stating failures after only a few thousand miles. Could be the Slave Cylinder, could be the Rear Main Seal.
I went to Jack's Tech Session in NC last December, when we got to my slave it was leaking, at 48,000. Higher than yours but well under Dave Shealy's 60K predicted failure line. At that time we also found my rear trans output seal leaking into the swingarm and replaced that as well.
If the clutch is not badly contaminated, they can dry out on their own (sometimes!) after the problem is resolved. You might want to start with the SC and see what it looks like. A lot of guys have done it with success and some help from their friends.
