Default why are these related?

There is something wrong with both pictures and there is a relation.

Do you know what it is? (I'll wager Brent and Tom know)

Bingo!
the thick washer is on backwards. (Crown should be against nut / concave towards engine.
As a result two things happened. The washer could not "rock" to place even pressures on the manifolds and, the nut backed off allowing burn through on the gasket.

Did the manifold mounting ears survive? I know someone that broke an ear of a NOS exhaust doing that!

I'm no expert. I'm just trying to learn enough to graduate from this school of hard knocks.

Just the sort of thing you might learn from experience if you could figure out what went wrong. Excellent post for those of us ignorant of this pitfall. Thanks.
