Thank you very much.

The behavior differs slightly from those seen earlier because the
timer list contains only three timers when it tries to add another
one.  Still the conjecture that we try to add a timer while checking
timers has been proven.

To remember - w3m.el sets `mode-line-buffer-identification' as

  (setq mode-line-buffer-identification
        `(,@(w3m-static-if (featurep 'xemacs)
                (list (cons modeline-buffer-id-right-extent "%b") " ")
              (nconc (propertized-buffer-identification "%b") '(" ")))
           "Loading..." ,(if (fboundp 'format-mode-line)
                             '(:eval (w3m-modeline-title))
                           (if w3m-use-title-buffer-name

where `w3m-modeline-title' is specified as

(defun w3m-modeline-title ()
  "Return a truncated title not to cut the right end of the mode line.
It currently works only with Emacs 22 and newer."
  (if w3m-use-title-buffer-name
    (when w3m-current-title
      (or (and w3m-modeline-title-timer w3m-modeline-title-string)
              (setq w3m-modeline-title-string w3m-current-title
                    w3m-modeline-title-timer t)
              (let ((excess (- (string-width
                                (condition-case nil
                                    (format-mode-line mode-line-format 1)
                                  (error "")))
                    (tlen (string-width w3m-current-title)))
                (when (and (> excess 0)
                           (> tlen 3))
                  (setq w3m-modeline-title-string
                        (concat (w3m-replace-in-string
                                  w3m-current-title (max (- tlen excess 3) 2))
                                 "[\t ]+\\'" "")
            (run-at-time 0.5 nil
                         (lambda (buffer)
                           (when (buffer-live-p buffer)
                             (with-current-buffer buffer
                               (setq w3m-modeline-title-timer nil))))

Inherently, this truncates the mode line text when `w3m-current-title'
is too long and installs a timer which inihibts such truncations for
half a second with the motivation

(defvar w3m-modeline-title-timer nil
  "Say time has not gone by after the mode line was updated last time.
It is used to control the `w3m-modeline-title' function running too
frequently, set by the function itself and cleared by a timer.")

So it seems that we do something we are supposed to avoid - call Lisp
from asynchronous redisplay as a consequence of some mouse movement

I have no idea what further to learn or teach from this experience,
