Well, after thinking about it a few days I decided I would not be happy just ignoring the problem with the electronic level. I also noticed that the lines on the focus screen were not aligned with the sensor. In other words, if I lined up the line on the focus screen with a vertical line like the edge of a window, it would look straight in the viewfinder but the image was noticeably crooked on the computer. So I sent it back for replacement.

The new one arrived yesterday and after thoroughly testing everything I can think of, I am a happy k-5 owner. I cannot find a single thing to complain about.

Thanks to Adorama for a quick, painless exchange!

Congratulation! You proved that at least some K-5 have accurate level meter I've just decided to exchange mine one more time. It's just fortunate that Adorama's service is excellent. I also got mine from there.
