I emulated a slow connection by adding `(sleep-for 3)' at
the beginning of `w3m-process-start-process', and found (perhaps)
the problem of the advice function.  It blanks out the page buffer
as fast as Emacs can, however the buffer won't be redisplayed until
the network process starts.  This version forces Emacs to redisplay
the buffer immediately:

(defadvice w3m-retrieve-and-render (before clear-display-while-reading
  "Clear the current display while reading a new page."
  (let ((inhibit-read-only t))
    (insert-char ?\n (/ (window-height) 2))
    (insert-char ?  (max 0 (/ (- (window-width) (length url) 11) 2)))
    (insert "Reading " url "...")
    (sit-for 0)))

To test this, delete the advice I wrote before and restart Emacs.
