I figured it out. The problem actually had nothing to with Emacs. It seems as though w3m on Arch Linux is broken. Recompiling it myself fixed it.

I've found the same problem too, but no solution. I come across it when
pasting text from a web posting into emacs.

However, I have a script called 'ebuild' on my blog site which you might find
useful for updating and rebuilding emacs. Its all automatic until it wants to
install in '/usr/local/bin' when it just wants your password to install it.
