yeah I think you have got it, tho I'm not saying its wget fault

I will try and find a download so you can verify the issue, I have had
at least 2 in recent months..

yeah I do realise the problem atm is with a known length file - the
examples I will provide are also known length

however it may take some time to track down the downloads - I just
lost 1Tb drive with url references and everything I have ever
downloaded.. so it may take some time - I have had one within last 30
days tho - might be able to find it thru browser history

note that I never did debug output for any of these servers - just
observed responses to normal wget use, did various tests to confirm it
was reproduced and not user or filesystem issue
