Quoth the text in "customize fringe-mode"

   "Note that the actual width may be rounded up to ensure that the
    sum of the width of the left and right fringes is a multiple of
    the frame’s character width.  However, a fringe width of 0 is
    never rounded"

I take that to mean that the fringe widths may differ by up to one
pixel. Perhaps your frame's character width is odd? (I don't know
at the moment how to get that).
