I installed my Leviton 6201 myself but asked an electrician about it when he
was recently doing some work on our renovation. He said both legs should be
on a double pole breaker in case 1 leg faulted (unlikely but but if you're
looking for the technical answer....). From memory, I believe the Leviton
instructions stated it should be on a breaker by itself. I bought my Leviton
from Worthington for $135 - well worth it. It solved all of my X10
flakiness. It's now 100% solid.

As I understand it, the electrical code says you need a DUAL 15-amp breaker
- so it`s connected to both legs of the 240V circuit. I don`t think that
two independent breakers are acceptable.
And, yes, they have to be dedicated to the bridge (AFAIK).
