There is a bug, but it's different and somewhat less serious than what you 
believe it is.  When you check or uncheck the "Left and right pages" checkbox, 
it improperly wraps quotes around any header or footer with a cell expression in 

You can undo the damage by closing the Headers and Footers dialog (if open) and 
evaluating this in your notebook...

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], PageHeaders -> Inherited, 
 PageFooters -> Inherited]

Now, you can make the changes you wish to make in the dialog box.  As long as 
you don't toggle the "Left and right pages" checkbox again, you'll be fine. The 
problem will be fixed for the next incremental release of Mathematica.
