Can you tell me whether adding --auth-no-challenge fixes this behavior?

I haven't got access to an NTLM server to test; if someone wants to
provide a setup for me to play with, that'd be great.

Such special characters shouldn't be the source of this problem. More
likely it was the fixes I introduced to ensure Wget doesn't issue
cleartext authentication without first receiving a challenge to do so,
apparently breaking NTLM in the process.

I'll try to set up an NTLM-ish server in the test suite when I get a
chance, so in the future I can detect such inadvertent breakage.
