I can't reproduce this problem. Could you give me more information?

I have installed the small trick to avoid this problem. Would you
test the latest stable version? It is developed on `emacs-w3m-1_2'
branch of CVS, and can be installed by these following commands:
% cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/storage/cvsroot login
CVS password: guest
% cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/storage/cvsroot co -r emacs-w3m-1_2 emacs-w3m
% cd emacs-w3m
% make install
To solve this problem completely, it is necessary to use w3m which
accepts `-dump_extra' option. This option was added by the patch
which was posted after the last official version `w3m-0.2.1' was
released. Therefore, you will have to apply w3m-0.2.1-inu-patch can
be downloaded from:
and will have to recompile w3m.
Thank you for your report.
