`(setq w3m-async-exec nil)' is a workaround.  This enables `C-g'
to stop it, though you'll probably not care much for it.  Normally
emacs-w3m works asynchronously to fetch and to display images.
Why `C-c C-k' doesn't work seems to be that there's no time slot
in which Emacs accepts that command because of many asynchronous
processes at a time.  I have no idea.  Sorry.
