Re: w3m-goto-url with URL containing colons?

Ok, I understand now.

The problem is that "orgmode :ARCHIVE:" is considered a valid url by
`w3m-canonicalize-url' -- because after evaluating

  (w3m-string-match-url-components url)

(match-beginning 1) yields non-nil.

Dunno if this is expected; but I tried several browsers, and w3m is the
only one that behaves this way in this case.

   Who can help - should the behavior be changed???

@Thorsten: In any case you can request google search directly, enter

    gg: orgmode :ARCHIVE:

into the minibuffer.  You can configure `w3m-uri-replace-alist' to
replace the "gg:" prefix with something easier to type, like just "g".
