Is this just a new application of the cookie hijacking that has already been disclosed?
Go into your Gmail settings -> General Tab. Look for Browser connection and check Always use HTTPS

If your extra paranoid, get Firefox and NoScript.
NoScript can set cookies to be secure only. That means the cookie will only be sent over a secure (https) connection.
For someone to steal my GMAIL_AT cookie, they need to be using a ssl site.
