I do not have the camera handy to try, but I thought the opposite -- I thought that the setting in Live View and Viewfinder were independent and is remembered from the last time in live view. A brief look at the manual didn't show anything on the subject.

Now that's a new one, and is not related to ANY of the "left side AF" issues, as that implies the sensor/lens combination is not aligned. I'd suggest trying other lenses and something carefully controlled to be sure. Do you have a filter on the lens, if so I'd recommend at least trying without.
