I'd try it on a tripod so that you can be sure it's not you tilting the camera when you press the shutter button.

Tripod makes no difference.  The dots don't align exactly with the squares.

It's easy to remove and replace the focus screen in a 450D if you know what you're doing, but yeah, daunting the first time and easy to mess up. 

I don't know if replacing would make a difference, I was hoping to rotate.

Check out the unofficial Rebel Talk FAQ - http://snipurl.com/RebelFAQ

Do you have the full URL for the RebelFAQ site - Firefox is warning me against going to that URL, presumably because snipurl has been used for linking to some dodgy sites?

Here is a direct link to the FAQs.

And Here is a focus screen tutorial for the XSi/450D.

Good luck!
