In the middle of the last year (in the Emacs head), `switch-to-buffer'
was restricted to be used as an interactive command only, and the byte
compiler got to warn about non-interactive usage.  It was taken back
soon, though.  `w3m-switch-to-buffer' is the one made just then.
I'll replace it back to `switch-to-buffer', later.
