Issue with custom header and edit a page - ONLY in IE8

in our main.vmd we have the following, which we've been using since 2.x - to put a banner across the top of the page, and links to some of our our other applications. What happens now is that when you edit a page, the bottom section of the edit page is missing. (savebar-container) So, no save, cancel, permission update, etc. It looks like its being pushed right out of the browser page. If I use developer tools, and search for savebar-container, click it, then change my resolution to 75% - I can see and use the save bar.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
