Two possibilities leap to mind:
1. You're logged in and the theme in your user profile is set to
rightsidebar.  If you log out, you'll see your changes take effect.
2. You're using fcgi or mod_python, in which case any changes to .py
files will only take effect once you've restarted Apache.  If you're
using Apache....
