I found no term such as `w3m' or `emacs-w3m' in your message.
Is the problem really concerned with emacs-w3m? ;-)

(If Gnus causes it, I doubt the timer which runs in
`mm-display-external'.  I'd implemented it in 2005-12-07 so as
to delete a temp file two seconds after launching an external
viewer.  It might be too short for large files or slow machines.)

BTW, I'm inactive in every weekend, so please don't beat me even
if I don't respond.
