This happens because fringe.el has this customization form for "half"
in the defcustom for fringe-mode:

                 (const :tag "Half width" (5 . 5))

And the doc string for fringe-mode says this, among the rest:

                               This command may round up the left and
    right width specifications to ensure that their sum is a multiple
    of the character width of a frame.

So 5 is rounded up to 8, and the rest is history.

I don't know why the values are 5 instead of 4.  The default fringe
width is 8 on all GUI displays, so half of that should have been 4,
not 5.  Maybe I'm missing some subtlety here.

Can someone please check on X whether (fringe-mode '(4 . 4)) does TRT?
If it does, I think we should use 4 instead of 5 in the above
