2002 525i differential failure

Had the dealer replace the rear differential pinion seal due to leak at end of July 2013. Car has 175,000 miles. In October 2013 heard whining noise from rear of car which rapidly got worse. Elevated rear and ran car at friend's garage. Differential made noise, was hot to the touch and there was fluid in the differential with metal shavings. Had car towed to the dealer a week ago. Dealer says they are still trying to determine what happened. Coincidence or dealer caused problem?
