w3m-download trouble

You may recall I offered a very different implementation of w3m-download
than exists in the master branch, so only now when I was testing PR#80
have I recently been using the master branch version.

What I'm finding is that I can only get the feature to work for
file-type 'txt'. Anything else reports a failure, but the debug output
to the *Messages* buffer indicates no error, reporting many download
progress lines, correct URLs and pathnames,  and HTTP 200 status.

Here's an example output:

File(/home/boruch/.w3m/verifiedfacts.html) downloading failed:
W3m-in-progress: 0.02/6.75kb

8< -----<snip>------ >8

W3m-in-progress: 7.17/7.17kb
W3m-current-url: http://www.verifiedfacts.org/
W3m-document-charset: US-ASCII
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

BTW, my version is still available out there, and has been seeing a lot
of use, with many features not available in the master branch:
+ bulk downloads
+ resumption of aborted downloads (even if emacs crashes)
+ queue management
+ uses wget instead of w3m
+ see there for more
