Yeah if it's going to leak it will do so when the engine is hot, the oil flows a lot "Thinner" then and can get through the gaps. Obvious but sometimes useful to know.
If there is a washer involved maybe try replacing it, run the engine to let it get hot and look for leaks, maybe tightening up can help while the engine is running (But not beyond spec as greywolf says) then you may be able to visually be able to see the leak stop. If that is a copper crush washer I can see then that's the first to change.
Adding an extra crush washer can really increase your chances of stopping the leak.
