1st I've heard they REQUIRE a phone # to use Gmail over Tor.  Anyone 
else aware this is the only way?
I'd bet, from the Google message about "unusual activity," it was 
because the exit node wasn't in the  same country I used when created acct.

Can you expand a little of Torbutton's cookie handling being fixed?  
Again, I'm using TB 1.3.2a.
What are the criteria for TB to allow a site to set cookies?
