Windows 7: Bookmarklet issues in IE8

Bookmarklet issues in IE8

I am a huge fan of bookmarlets. I keep a folder on my bookmarks bar full of them. Since installing Windows 7 I haved decided to give IE8 a try. The problem I'm having is that certain bookmarklets create pop windows when activated like the Google Boomark bookmarklet. IE8 is blocking these with it's pop up blocker. I set the pop up blocker to it's lowest setting but it stiil blocks them. Shutting the pop up blocker off works but I don't want to have to do that. Is there some setting I'm over looking?

I have no problem with Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari. They don't block the bookmarklet pop ups but still block the pop ups that they should.
