Thank you for the report.  I guess it happens because a url that is
an empty string has been registered (or is about to be registered)
in your "~/.w3m/.arrived" file.  Isn't there a line that begins


in that file?  If such ones are found, there might be something
wrong that generates them in emacs-w3m.  Anyway, removing elements
beginning with  (""  will solve the problem.  An `element' means
the one which looks like:

  (18263 30018 483795)

But if you don't have such ones, try the attached patch below.
Though this is no more than a workaround, we will have to install
it in CVS for the moment.
