I got the same error for that page.  The contents are compressed
by gzip but seem to have corrupted, since gzip returned the
message ``gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file'' and the code 1.

Well, we can make gzip return always the code 0 as follows,
though it isn't a right solution. ;-)

(setcdr (assq 'gzip w3m-decoder-alist)
	'("/bin/sh" ("-c" "gzip -d 2>/dev/null; exit 0")))
