Starter frustration - More carnage

I posted about my failed starter last week and now I have more trouble. I installed the repaired starter then turned the engine over. Rrrrr clank Rrrrr clank Rrrr clank. Apparently when the starter failed it took out a tooth in my SFI rated flexplate. All parts were new and working well for about three weeks. The engine ran perfectly and never kicked back.

How in the world could I break a high-end mini-starter and bust a tooth on my flexplate? I am stumped on how this could have happened.
