Don't you use xdg-open or the like for the external viewer?
It starts the real viewer program as a background job and quits
immediately. So, Emacs will recognize that the viewer finishes
and the temporary image file gets unnecessary, and tries to delete
it. After the viewer finishes, emacs-w3m makes Emacs wait for 1
second before deleting the file. It might be too short, though.
Could you try increasing the timer value? Here it is:
(defun w3m-external-view-file (command file url arguments)
(run-at-time 1 nil
If it needs to be a long time, it would be necessary to schedule
deleting the temp files by `kill-emacs-hook' as well.
 So may be gnome-open, fiber, etc.
