I would redo your oil change with a new filter.
that is a good point, you may have cracked the filter receiver 9what ever it is actually called) because i believe it is cast aluminum, cast iron at the best... neither of which is really strong...
if that is cracked, it could cause exactly what you described... and a new filter wouldn't change that...
