Thanks! I didn't know about toggle-debug-on-error.
Wow, it appears that TWiki is sending the entire page text as part of
the URL when submitting changes to a page:

  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Stack overflow in regexp matcher")
    string-match("\\`\\(\\([^:/?#]+\\):\\)?\\(//\\([^/?#]*\\)\\)?\\([^?#]*\\)\\(\\?\\([^#]*\\)\\)?\\(#\\(.*\\)\\)?\\'" "http://wiki/bin/preview/Main/BigWikiPage?text=---%2B%20Big%20Wiki%20Page%0D%0A%0D%0A [and so on, tens of kb of text ]
    w3m-expand-url("http://wiki/bin/preview/Main/BigWikiPage?text= [same here]
    w3m-create-text-page("http://wiki/bin/preview/Main/BigWikiPage"; "text/html" "ISO-8859-1" #<buffer *w3m*>)

so wherever W3M-URL-COMPONENTS-REGEXP is used I get in trouble. One
could probably re-write this code so that it doesn't use a regexp.
However, maybe it's just a problem with my particular emacs version
(21.2.1) or even the text I'm trying to match:


For now, I just added this nasty kludge, which works only for me of

(defun w3m-expand-url (url &optional base)
  "Convert URL to the absolute address, and canonicalize it."
  (if (and (> (length url) 23)
	   (string= (substring url 0 23)

      [ original function body goes here ]


Thanks for your help,
