Question about Pontiac Bonneville
If the leaking gasket was a long term problem, the bearings may have been ready to fail. A standard procedure when replacing any gasket that has possibly been leaking anything into the engine is to do an oil change. If I read your question right, sounds like this wasn't done, if it was, then it would be hard to fault the shop. Any coolant or fuel that leaks into the oil will degrade the lubrication properties of the oil possibly to the point of metal to metal contact causing the bearings to fail.
