I tried it again with the testfile in the PicoLisp wiki - and maybe it
was only a user error? Because the submission steps seem to be:

[...edit textarea...]
1. C-c C-c in the *w3m form textarea* buffer
2. C-c C-c again (!) in the web-page textarea
3. press the 'Done' button

Then it actually seems to work!

I always omitted step 2 before, because I thought the C-c C-c in the
*w3m form textarea* buffer already sends the input. 

So this might be no bug but just a misunderstanding by me - then sorry
for the noise.
