Layout problem in Confluence 5 Admin screens

Hello people,

I'm experiencing a weird layout problem when I develop my own web sections within the Confluence administration: the left main navigation shifts down with the my body content.

I attached two screenshots:

1) The default layout of the administration console (which is perfectly fine)
2) My own admin action which makes the navigation shift down

The screens show the Chrome devtools with a <br class="clear"> tag marked. In the screen with the layout problem, if I shift that <br> tag up one div level, the problem is solved. But I'm not sure how to fix this (I'm currently putting a <br class="clear"> with JavaScript one level higher at the end of <div id="admin-content"> which is an ugly workaround I would like to get rid of.

Any help's appreciated!

Why are you even clearing that? Can you not just remove that entirely?

Also if you do need to clear floats I'd recommend using the micro-clearfix technique instead of adding an element like that <br>
