Gap in trim behind top of windshield?

After having the windshield replaced on my 99 vert, I'm noticing a visible gap above the trim piece at the top of the windshield on the inside (#1 in the diagram here: )


When it's dark outside and the interior lights are on, I can actually see (from outside of the car) through this gap into the inside of the dome light housing. I never noticed that before the windshield was replaced.

I can't tell if there is a piece (like a molding or weatherstrip) missing at the top of the windshield on the inside, or if maybe the old glass just had a wider black band at the top that concealed the gap.

I'm having the company who installed the new windshield come back out next week to take a look, abut does anybody here have any ideas, or better yet, a picture of theirs showing what it should look like from both inside and outside?
