I would have to agree with Nick on either the washer or the little o-ring on the tensioner.

A few years ago we had a weird one, either an '02 or '03 9-5 Linear with a chronic oil leak problem. After numerous seals, a head gasket, a short block, turbo, PCV update etc, someone decided to put pressure to the head revealing a hairline crack in the back corner near the tensioner where oil was able to leak out. Like I said, that was a weird one.
