I can't reproduce this problem.  Could you give me more information?
Especially, contents of the " *w3m-work*" buffer after you hit C-g is

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:guest@cvs.namazu.org:/storage/cvsroot login
    CVS password: guest
    % cvs -d :pserver:guest@cvs.namazu.org:/storage/cvsroot co -r emacs-w3m-1_2 emacs-w3m
    % cd emacs-w3m
    % autoconf
    % ./configure
    % 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.
