But I think there's something I'm missing -- a padding command or something -- because it doesn't repeat vertically in a solid unit; it shows, then there's white space, then it repeats.
You can't use padding or margin on a background image in CSS. But what do you want a repeating background image for? All I see is a background color - which you'd have to define anyway if you're using a background image, just in case someone doesn't load images... I suggest you just specify background-color in this case, and you're done for the sidebar background.
