I've fixed it in the emacs-w3m CVS trunk.  Thanks.

It is due to the decoding of url string, which is normally
encoded into 7bit characters to pass to the web server and is not
human-readable. However, it has not been encoded yet in that case.
The cause is that the url is mistakenly decoded by a certain coding
system held in the `w3m-coding-system-priority-list' variable.

This is controlled by:
| w3m-verbose is a variable defined in `w3m.elc'.
| Its value is nil
| Documentation:
| *Flag controls whether to log messages in the *Messages* buffer.
| If it is nil, a lot of messages issued by emacs-w3m will be displayed
