I'm having a little trouble understanding exactly what you're saying.

Is it that, in response to wget's request for ranged content, some
servers send back a 206, ranged response, but for a range of "0-",
instead of what wget requested? I did not know this. I had thought that
would be illegal, but I can't find language in the spec to that effect.

I'm not sure, but I think wget may assume that 206 responses match the
range that was requested, without checking. If that's the case, then its
clearly broken behavior, given what you say above.

Still, none of this is likely to be DJ's problem, since he's doing this
for a known-length file on a heavily-used server.
