Thanks, your solution is neat and does indeed work!
I think it could be useful, as you said, if it is a toggable w3m option
(like on/off, where the "on" state prevents the deletion of the window used
by w3m when quitting).

I'm a little confused: in emacs what do you call window and what frame?


<<When Emacs is started on a graphical display, e.g., on the X Window
System, it occupies a graphical system-level “window”. In this manual, we
call this a frame, reserving the word “window” for the part of the frame
used for displaying a buffer. A frame initially contains one window, but it
can be subdivided into multiple windows (see Windows). A frame normally also
contains a menu bar, tool bar, and echo area.>>

emacs' frame (X system-level "window")
| emacs' | emacs' |
| window | window |
|        |        |

The window containing the buffer selection (aka w3m-select-buffer) is
deleted quitting w3m as it is supposed to be part of w3m.
