No harm to slightly overfill a manual transmission. If anything, it's more oil to help dissipate heat better.
Amsoil Synchromesh did wonders for my Cruze's 6-speed transmission. Give it a few shifts and it loosens right up even when stone-cold.
It never ceases to amaze me what junk fluids the OEM's put into their manual cars, at least the cheaper ones.
