It's been over a month since the sidebar of component has been whacked OUT (pushed down under the entry when you go to comment), so how come there hasn't been a fix yet by LJ? This seems like a long time for this issue to go unaddressed (unless I missed something in the LJ 'news')...but still a long time for layouts to be messed up. I've had component since I started with LJ almost 7 years ago, it would be a bummer to have to change just because this issue never gets resolved.
eta: 9/13/12 I've opened an 'official' Support Request to LiveJournal regarding this issue. Hopefully it won't fall on deaf ears. @_@
