transmission fluid mystery leak Help!

I have a 2003 SLK32 AMG with about 40K miles. It has never leaked anything. I put it in storage for the winter last November. About a week after I put it in storage, the guy that owns the building called to tell me that the car just leaked about a quart of transmission fluid (he thinks) on his floor then quit leaking. A few weeks later I started it up, drove it a bit and put it back and no leaks.
I am getting ready to get it back out of storage, and wonder if anyone knows what may be the cause of a temporary leak. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just ordered a transmission dipstick so I can verify the fluid level.
