Ah, that explains it. It causes me to wonder just how much is now
coming preinstalled, and doesn't need to be added on? I may be adding a
bunch of stuff twice, which may I suppose cause some confusion down the

I couldn't find anything with snapshot in it for testing, so maybe that
is a sid thing? Or maybe it is from another repository I haven't
accessed. The packages I used were emacs (which installed emacs22) and
w3m-el. And w3m actually works just fine, and for instance I can run
M-x w3m and surf just as expected.
What was odd is that if I set up browse-url-generic with w3m-browse-url
(which also works from M-x...) I get a complaint that there is no such
file or program as w3m-browse-url. But, it runs from emacs just fine,
so I know there is such a file or program, and apparently so does emacs.
It's just wierd. It's not a big deal really, as there are many work
arounds, but I just couldn't help thinking I have something messed up.

Seconded, to all involved.
