Try: (setq use-dialog-box nil)

It seems to default to t.  The docstring of `y-or-n-p', that
issues the `you are leaving...' prompt in w3m.el, says:

| Under a windowing system a dialog box will be used if
| `last-nonmenu-event' is nil and `use-dialog-box' is non-nil.

The value of `last-nonmenu-event' is the last keyboard code of
a command, or nil if a command is invoked from a mouse menu.
So, if you invoke a w3m command by a mouse menu (I don't know
what it is, though), you should have gotten a dialog box.
