Layout width problems in Internet Explorer 8

Hi there,

I recently noticed that my layout looks really messed up in IE 8 (Layer #15404192). The sidebar components width is way out of proportions. I suspect that the problem may have partly to do with my Log-in component from this tutorial, since the complete width of the entries and the sidebar only fits when the user is logged in.
But even then the width relation between the entries and the sidebar is still out of proportion immensely. I tried to fix the problem by installing this tutorial, but the code seemed to be only working on FF and had no effect whatsoever in IE 8, so I deleted it again.

A few screencaps to show my problem:
Layout as it should look (user logged out in FF)
Layout as it should look (user logged in in FF)
Screwed up layout (user logged out in IE8)
Screwed up layout (user logged in in IE8)

Thanks for any help in advance!

P.S.: I tried to tag this correctly, but I'm not sure, if it's alright, so feel free to edit! ;)
