No idea, sorry.  I haven't yet found the time to look into this deeper.

Possibly, but the question is why do we enter either of these situations
(process sleeping and accept-process-output timing out) exclusively when
using Emacs threads, no?

By the way, the problem isn't specific to wget; the same thing happens
with curl.  I also find it strange that the first thread doesn't suffer
from the same problem as the second thread, especially given each thread
is created only after the last thread exited.
