#menu (and also #sidebar) grows in width in IE because there are some
unbreakable text in there. IE/win doesn't respect given dimensions, and
is running out of space.

One solution - add...

#menu, #sidebar {overflow-x: hidden;}

....preferably for IE/win only.

You should also look at methods for auto-breaking such text-lines when
necessary - at least in IE/win. Have a look back for similar case(s) on
css-d in the last few days.
