I observe a noticeable delay (sometimes around a second) in refreshing
the bar right after closing a tab with the command w3m-delete-buffer
(emacs 24.3.1 and emacs-w3m installed from MELPA).  Up until a month or
two ago the update used to be instantaneous.

Something i don't fully understand is why you need to rely on a
background process to update the tab line in this case: couldn't
w3m-delete-buffer just trigger an immediate refresh of the tab line right
after killing the buffer? (it knows for sure that it's been modified).
