[rescue] memory failure?

I'm running an SS2 with Linux.  I've just noticed an odd error-message from
w3m when I try to load very big web pages:

  Needed to allocate blacklisted block at 0x[hexnum]

repeated several times for different hex numbers.

If I do:

  strings `which w3m`|grep blacklisted

that error message shows up as being inside w3m, so it doesn't look like it's
coming from the memory manager, the disk stuff, or libc.  But it is a little
worrying - has anyone else seen this, and does it perhaps mean that I have
some dodgy memory or disk in my machine?  I haven't noticed any problems with
other apps, there's nothing immediately obvious in the logs, and even w3m seems
to be behaving correctly.
