I'd say manufacturing fault where the dropout is bonded.

Yes thats what i thought, altho i've done approx 9000km on the frame so it seems sound...might call into the local Giant store, see what they make of it,

As you've done already plenty of kms, I would say it doesn't look like it's going on but it looks like a "solid" mark which is not going anywhere, just came out of factory like that.
If you're lucky they might change with a new one but I wouldn't have too much hope on it.
