GNU Emacs Version 26.1 and emacs-w3m version 1.4.631, running on Fedora 29.

emacs-w3m seems to have quit working for me. More precisely:

  1. I issue the command "emacs -q"
  2. I do (set debug-on-error t) in the scratch buffer.
  3. I do (w3m) in the scratch buffer.

The result is the backtrace at the end of this posting.

Oddly enough, other users do not encounter this problem: w3m works as expected.

Suggestions?

Here's the backtrace:
