So you have switched off the fringes -- normally that pixel is
"stolen" from the left fringe.

The problem is that emacs calculate widths in "columns" rather than
pixels, so when you split things horisontally, you need to steal
that pixel somewhere ...   

I have an idea that it could be taken from the scroll bar instead --
That would be less visible (also when fringes are present).  I'll put
it on my todo list.
