Yep, missed that. Sounds like a JAWS CSS parsing issue. I moved the line out of the @media section and it removes the sidebar visually as well as for JAWS,

Seems fixed in JAWS 7.1.

You might want to try moving reapplying the display property below the @media section, just to see if that solves the issue. A hack, but it might do it.
