w3m is to blame.  See expr(1) for more details and a workaround which
is portable to both historic and POSIX expr implementations.
(Allegedly, the new expr behavior is already required of all
UNIX-branded systems, so the w3m authors should be well familiar with
it.  It is an old POSIX.2 requirement.)
