How can I do a chargeback to paypal from my amex for an ebay auction without screwing the seller?

eBay made an error when computing eBay bucks back for me on a recent purchase.
An eBay's customer service rep agreed that I'm owed money (hundreds of dollars) but apologized that she can't do anything to help.
I payed with my American Express through Paypal. In any other situation, this would be the perfect situation to have Amex step in. However, paypal are notoriously slimy. I'd like to do a chargeback to recover what I'm owed, but don't want the chargeback to be passed on to the seller, which would screw him. I'm guessing, though, that that's exactly what paypal would do.
Is there any way to do this and have it come out of ebay/Paypal's ass and not the seller's?
