Can the current url become the failed target file:///nosuchfile.html, so
that then "B" goes back to where you were?  That would make a
non-existent file more like a http 404.

It'd also be good for when starting M-x w3m-browse-url
file:///tmp/nosuch.html.  Then that would be the current url to see in
"=", or to reload with "R" if something happens externally to bring the
file into existence (mounting a drive, running a program, etc).
