   And after some time I got:

   Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument timerp nil)
     signal(wrong-type-argument (timerp nil))
     cancel-timer(nil)
     w3m-idle-images-show()
     apply(w3m-idle-images-show nil)
     timer-event-handler([t 0 1 0 t w3m-idle-images-show nil idle 0])

   since then this message appears every 5-10 sec or so, which
   is really annoying.  What can I do with that?

In my copy of w3m.el (‘emacs-w3m-version’ => "1.4.483"), there
are three instances of:

 (cancel-timer w3m-idle-images-show-timer)

What you can do is replace those w/:

 (w3m-cancel-timer w3m-idle-images-show-timer)

and add somewhere to w3m.el the definition:

 (defun w3m-cancel-timer (timer)
   "If TIMER is non-nil, pass it to `cancel-timer'."
   (when timer
     (cancel-timer timer)))

If this works after some personal testing, you can then submit
a patch to the w3m.el maintainers (possibly as part of a bug
report that describes the motivation for the patch), and
continue the conversation there.

So, that's what you can do.  Question is: What will you do?
