Line 1262 is in the `w3m-filter-youtube' defun!

Line 1222 OTOH, which is in
`w3m-filter-stackexchange', is

    (while (re-search-forward "^\t</a>" p2 nil)
    ... )

It also has a comment on lines 1165-1169:

    ; TODO: FIXME: The following condition-case
    ; is a kludge because when the
    ; `re-search-forward' statements were not
    ; finding anything, we were getting "error
    ; in process sentinel: while: Search
    ; failed:". The proper solution is likely
    ; in the process sentinel (whichever one
    ; that turns out to be), not here.
