    I have experienced the same thing with a standard page size with autocad when the "drawing extents" get messed up.

    This problem is very aparent in mechanical desktop if you have a very large width, and skinny height 3d model, or any extreme rectangular shape at all.

    The viewport windows for the 3d views extend off of the page, making your plot setting change when it is not desired.  

    My only known workaround for this would be to go to Plot - and choose a window slightly larger than your drawing - giving you some cushion on the plot borders.
