This is probably because of incorrectly set `W3MIMGDISPLAY_PATH' variable (for example, one refering to a non-existent path).  Then `Popen' from img_display.py tries to setup a process from the non-existent file and fails, but the exception is intercepted and (mistakenly) ignored.  Later reference to the process will cause the crash.

Attached is the patch.
