When logged into sites on the Stack Exchange network from my Galaxy S3, on either the built-in browser or Chrome, there's a white line down the right side of every page:

The problem is even more pronounced on Chrome, with the line being about twice as thick. It also causes each page to get the dreaded horizontal scroll bar at the default zoom level (the above was zoomed out all the way).

Same problem on iOS 7.1.2:

This only seems to happen while logged in - when logged out the page renders fine.

Any chance this could be tidied up?

    I regret not waiting another minute to take the picture. Oh well.

    In my case in Chrome, the site(s) loads fine without the whitespace displayed by default. But you can zoom out to force the whitespace to display.

    @StevenV Yes - that's what I'm seeing. You can also just scroll to the right and it'll show as well, which is how I first noticed it.

There was an extraneous position: relative on an element in the topbar; next build will remove it and fix this issue.
