Yep I had a coolant leak from that exact hose you speak of. Took me 2 long hours of cursing and frustration before I finally got the hose on and the hose clamp tightened. But besides that yes that vacuum line set up has definitely been rigged like that. Not completely sure why you would run hoses over a hot intake manifold but I guess some people just don't think.
