I succeed in using w3m outside of emacs to both launch the files and to
download them. I can launch them by pressing <return> on the link, and
download them by pressing 'a' ("SAVE_LINK" w3m keymap command). I'm
using the debian w3m package, and my install is quite old.

The issue for emacs-w3m is that --IF-- user "aalinovi" is really asking
emacs-w3m to perform a download, then it should not depend at all on
mimetype - it should just save the resource. Mime-type should only come
into play if the request is to "open" or "launch" the URI. So, if user
"aalinovi" is really asking emacs-w3m to perform a download, then the
error that he is reporting makes no sense, and is a bug.

@Katsumi-san: are you able to download one of links using the 'a'
key-binding in w3m outside of emacs?
