Well done in getting a reply!
Social media has some use after all
Just heard back from them and they still cannot pinpoint the light leak, guess we have to live with it.

I am bummed I live in the sticks. No city-scapes and famous landmarks here .
Wait... wait - one of the first carousels in the USA is here and a church from the days of the whaling industry is still being used. I guess I will have to take some picts. I'll have to start a new forum - Semi-famous little town landmarks.
Interesting thread, I guess when you're living near some sights there's no way around taking some pictures of them sooner or later.
A lot more heat is generated during live view, not just from the backlight on the LCD, but the snsor gets warm as well. If left on too long, and the camera is in a warm location, it will go into overheat shutdown. Its also possible that components in the camera are drawing more power than normal, which makes them run hot.
I am sorry to hear they are dragging their heels, hopefully it is because they are trying to find out more for you!
I have always said that the measure of a business is not how they are when selling you their product / service, it is how they deal with a problem. The thing is when they have a basically reliable product they may not learn how to properly deal with any issues.
Are you taking the photographs over some ancient indian burial ground? Jus askin'
When the IR filter is removed, the camera sensor will pickup heat from inside the body. There are various shields for light, and they must be carefully replaced. I'd ask the company that did the work about a normal expectation. They should have tested it after the conversion.
I have this, but my pattern is a more defined flare.
Mine's on a 5D2, also full spectrum (clear sensor filter) converted by Life Pixel. They may know more about this, since they've probably had comments on it over the years unless it's extremely rare (just you and I!). But I've not got around to reaching out to them, and I'm not at the point of complaining about it, since the simple workaround is just not to use Live View during astrophotography except for focusing.
You can see my posts on it from just a couple of weeks ago, with photos, here:
Mine -- complete dark, same with no lens attached, only source of light must be within body -- 30s at 1600 ISO:
Kinda looks like light spot from single directional source at narrow angle.
If you have IR/UV filter removed, then it could be IR radiation from some component inside the camera, something that belongs to screen circuitry. Sometimes voltage stabilisers or voltage reference are made with LED sources.
If it's 600D, then I find it unlikely to be screen itself - screen is articulated and separated.
*I guess there is no IR detector below VF*
Do you see the artifact when you capture the LV image first after the camera has been off for a while? The issue might not be light, but heat. It looks like 'amp glow' but that's usually in a corner.
Have you tried contacting the company that did the spectrum conversion (assuming you didn't DIY)?
