Thanks for your investigation.  It seems to be the case where
the value of the w3m-icon-directory variable is nil.  How is it?
It should be set properly by default in many cases but sometimes
might fail.  The value should be the directory in which icon
files for emacs-w3m, e.g., antenna-up.xpm, spinner.gif, etc. have
been installed.
