That's a really slow leak and may not show up with a visual inspection. One commonly overlooked place to look is at the back of the master cylinder. Fluid will get sucked into the power booster and will be burned in the engine. You may need to pull the master cylinder loose to check for wetness around the push rod.

I'd also make sure you didn't have a seeping leak at one of the caliper piston boots. It may be leaking and burning off in the caliper.
