I've fixed it in the emacs-w3m CVS trunk.  Thanks for reporting.
The mark is normally deactivated when a Lisp function is executed,
though there are many exceptions.  In that case, the function that
makes a help-echo string is executed while dragging the mouse
because of the links.  I've made that function bind the variable
`deactivate-mark' to nil.

(For the moment I don't know how to fix it in XEmacs as well.)
