Briggs 16HP V-twin oil leak

I have a 16 HP Vanguard V-Twin that has an oil leak that appears to be around the dipstick o-ring. What could be the cause of it and is it a common problem.

If the oil is too high, there is gas in the oil, or the o-ring is just leaking. Common problem? Not exactly...not rare either... why?
