If by little bit you mean 3/4 inch or less, then no, it won't bother you. If it's more than an inch, you may have trouble, but you'll have to test it out for yourself.

boardlenght is chosen with your weight not your height...

if you choose board length on weight alone your stupid. it also depends on what you plan on riding, and height. the board should come between your chin and eyes as a general rule. and i wouldn't recommend a kid who's 5'4 get a 155 for jibbing would you? even if his weight fell into that category.

and for the future posters i also realize its possible to be short skinny and have a big foot.

I've heard that anything over an 1 1/2 inches is too much.

One inch is too much for me. I'd get a different board if I had an inch and a half. It's personal choice though. I don't like when my toes hit the snow, hehe.

I assume you mean 1 1/2 inch on each side. 3 inches total is a big overhang.

i think your at too much before you get to 1 1/2 inches. but i dident ever know this was problem unless your boot size was an 11.5 or higher.
