[Bug-wget] Early stop using wget with POST form data

I am trying to automate usage of the page [1] for a research project . Analysis 
with wireshark shows that when using any light-weight agent (wget, curl, 
libwww-perl), the server will not send a sixth tcp fragment containing the last 
and relevant part of the page. When using Firefox or Safari, it will. I 
emulated all HTTP-Headers and other things that might trigger defense 
mechanisms. Maybe one of you guys with deeper HTTP knowledge can figure this 

I sent the relevant POST data using the following command:

wget http://irr.bboi.net/cgi-bin/lg.cgi  

I have verified this issue from a different machine in a different subnet (Wget 
1.13.4). My local version is wget 1.12.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Kind Regards
