I sure hope that included some sort of lubricant.

Is this true ?
While not the best design, it can be avoided. Usually loss of traction on one or both wheels the suddenly gaining traction causes this. More so on manuals than automatics.

Any comments / suggestions?
These transmissions can be found very, very cheap. A lot of us just disassemble it, weld the differential pin in place then reinstall it into the car.

You might want to find a different place to take your car to be repaired. More so since you've already spent more than your car is worth to repair the first transmission.
