    You could try absolutely positioning that right column. Otherwise you would need to make a simplified test case to narrow down what is causing this odd problem.

    I can point you in the general direction of the problem:, but I haven't been able to quite fix it.  The javascript file side-menu.js appears to be exposing some kind of a hasLayout issue. That JS is changing the class name on the sideMenu, and I think that is causing that don't have "layout" to jump around.  It looks like that js may only necessary for ie6, because I tried disabling it and the problem seemed to go away in IE7, but the menu stopped functioning in IE6.  Then I tried adding zoom:1 to this style
    #side-menu ul{zoom:1;
    and that seems to fix IE7, but the problem persists in IE6.  There may be a simple fix for that, but I don't see it right away and have run out of time to work on it.... hope some of this helps move you in the right direction....
