Default Oil in Coolant

OK, so I've just barely crossed over the 100,000km warranty point (by 600km) with my 2002 WRX, which I recently purchased used. When I got it, at about 95K km, everything looked hunky dory. Recently, there's a ring of oil appearing in the rad overflow tank.

I'm going into the dealer with it regardless of it being covered by warranty or not, it's got to be better to deal with it now, rather than later. Has anyone run into a similar problem? From what I was told (dealer that serviced the car) all maintenance was done like clockwork, and there weren't any major repairs, so I'm assuming there wasn't anything stupid like the coolant running low and the heads warping. There isn't a lot of oil in there after about 3500km since the coolant was changed at the 96K km service, and the coolant level looks fine, so I'm guessing it's not burning coolant. (it's a little high if anything)

Anyway, just looking for any similar situations folks have been in so I can try and talk to the dealer knowledgably about it.
