It seems to me that a dual circuit master cylinder in a single circuit system is not going to be very safe. The plugged circuit will still get fluid (unless you plug the inlet somehow, which would then lead to unhappy/unlubricated seals and a very short life), and will give a pedal that's too firm, potentially affecting the rest of your brake system such ...

Yes, this would just be the differential seal leaking. Unfortunately, it is a little harder to replace than just pulling the drive shaft and input yoke and replacing the seal. There is a value called preload which must be applied to the nut which holds the yoke onto the pinion gear. If this is not applied correctly, the rear-end has a propensity to start ...

Teflon tape will not dissolve and should seal the plug, unless there is a larger issue with the plug itself or it's not seating correctly. It could also be, you just don't have the plug tight enough. Secondarily, you did use the correct port on the master? As for Telfon itself, because of its chemical makeup, it is one of the most non-reactive substances ...

tl dr - Obviously, if you are losing all your oil in a month (or so) time frame, it's a bad thing. You need to discover where you are leaking or using the oil and get it fixed.

Ask them how much to tighten all of the fittings on the system. My limited experience is that after time things become loose as opposed to failing. The exception being seals in the compressor itself....
