What version of Emacs or XEmacs and emacs-w3m are you using?
An easy way to get them is to type `M-x report-emacs-w3m-bug'.

There's a known problem that XEmacs other than the most recent
version doesn't run the timer function correctly, and it will
cause a malfunction on refreshing.  Even if you are using such a
version of XEmacs, emacs-w3m which is newer than v1.3.6 fixes
the problem.
