I use Junkbuster and have seen no evidence of this.  It allows cookies to be
set by sites I tell it are allowed to set them and no others.  Period.

Based on the observed behaviour of Mailman, it appears to me that it uses
session cookies only.  (If I shut down Netscape and restart it, I have to log
back in to Mailman.  That's how session cookies act.)
