On second thought I?m not so sure, for two reasons.
1) If it was a lintel problem, why did the previous repair fail?
2) When I cranked up the contrast, I realized that the damage is quite extensive above and to either side of the window.

As I did not see evidence of exterior foundation damage below the window I?m still inclined to call this as a case for a ?contractor evaluation? rather than an SE, but I though I?d ask what others here think.
