What I do is hit 'g', type in the new url or paste in a new one and then
hit C-k to kill the rest of the line. When you hit 'g', you are put at
the beginning of the line with the current url as default. Hitting C-k
kills the line from where the cursor is to the end. Therefore, anything
you type is inserted before the 'default' url, so C-k clears it. Its
similar behavior to firefox when you hit C-l, in which case the current
url is highlighted and you hit del to clear it - with w3m instead of
hitting del to clear it, you hit C-k.
