failed flywheel bolt

Last saturday I was finaly ready to put the engine back in the car, only needed to bolt on the flywheel and clutch and join the engine and gearbox. Easy job until a brand new flywheel bold said "ping" when torque-ing it. See the result in the attached pictures. Not trusting the rest of the bolts I decided to re-use the old bolts (with a little red loctite).
I am curious what could have caused this. The bolts were porsche originalteile from my local pc.
