I'm sorry I don't kown how emacs-w3m works under OS X, but I'm
afraid emacs-w3m might not work on some platforms because of the
asynchronous process.  It intends to realize the user can always
use Emacs even if w3m is running for retrieving a url.  The
default value of the user option `w3m-async-exec' is t and
emacs-w3m will call w3m asynchronously.  Could you please try to
set it to nil?

(setq w3m-async-exec nil)
