I've found that "export GC_NPROCS=1" before starting w3m on Mac OS X
10.5.1 avoids the problem. It seems to be a bug with dual core CPU
(and possibly multi-processors too). By looking into the call stack
and the boehm garbage collector source, I was able to identify that
environment variable as being a factor in how the GC works. Solved the
problem for me.
