When the throwout bearing fails, the clutch rod starts to rotate with the clutch and eventually spins/cooks the slave piston to destruction.
Good call, in addition to that check the pinion bearing that the clutch control rod rides on in the output shaft. Spinning of the rod that might of caused the problem with the slave cylinder could also have damaged this bearing and the rod riding surface. I just went through this failure about two months ago. Your problem sounds similar.
