This issue is as much about personal taste as it is a technical issue, but it's one that's come up a few times.
Some people have complained of a relatively dark (or light, depending on your colour settings) vertical line in the main Komodo editing window. It does look a little broken, until you understand what it's there for.
Some people still live in an 80-column world. Of course, Komodo users don't, but for situations where some members of the team live in 80 columns, Komodo has a feature (turned on by default) to show a line at the 80-column mark in the editing window, so you can have a visual cue to let you know when you've passed the 80-column mark. Of course, this is just a best guess for people using proportional fonts.
Of course, if this is not a concern for you and you object to the aesthetics of it, there is a way to turn it off. Go to the Preferences window, and unfold the Editor subtree. Choose Smart Editing, and look towards the bottom of the tab. There is a setting called "Show edge line/Highlight characters beyond edge line" which you will need to uncheck. Hit Okay, and it should go away. If not, restart Komodo.
Your Komodo editing window should now be line-free.
