Try latest w3m (not emacs-w3m):

$ git clone git://anonscm.debian.org/collab-maint/w3m.git

It is Debian's but works on at least Fedora 25 and Cygwin as
well.  Though I don't know what is bad in the old w3m/0.5.3, I
could reproduce the bug in question, and verified that the new
w3m/0.5.3+git20170102 works with no problem.
