It's not the size of the cookie but that it exists at all. Whenever a
website tries to drop a cookie it causes a security dialog to pop-up.
Some companies (such as AMC :) have overly paranoid IT managers and they
apply policies that either block or warn on such things. It's not a
problem, just annoying. :/

I imagine I was supposed to see some nice options or something but on
that page I'm not seeing any mouse-over activity besides clearing the
link destination from the navigation bar. Oops, I take that back, the
left and right call-out work fine with the mouse over, there's just
nothing in any of the corners of the code blocks.
