"Cookie Mismatch" when using Gmail.

Here is what happens:

I login to Gmail as normal.  I go to Settings / Accounts and Import / 
Change Account Settings - Google Account Settings.  When I click on that 
link the URL changes to https://www.google.com/accounts/CookieMismatch and 
the screen shows.

I am using TorButton and NoScript and Gmail and Gstatic are considered 
"trusted".  JS is on.  Cookies are on.  I can see them in Firefox Privacy 
settings.  I have deleted the cache, deleted cookies, rebooted Firefox, 
etc, but I cannot enter the Google Account Settings link.  All other parts 
of Gmail work fine.

Without using the Vidalia bundle I can login to the Account Settings with 
no problems.

Does someone know how to deal with this cookie issue?
