Re: [Bug-wget] How to prevent .1.html numbering of downloaded file?

OK some more info after some debugging.

Looks like the problem is in the unique_name function. At that point, it
does not know about adjust-extensions, so it always checks for name without
the extension. And depending on how things are queued, it can cause correct
or incorrect behavior. Anyone know if this is an existing issue, and any
known workaround? I can locally change wget if necessary, and will likely
do that after I figure it out.

So if things are queued like this, it is all fine:
article  (will save to article.html but calls unique_name with just
"article" which luckily does not exist)
article/post.html (will save to article/post.html, creating directory

but this will mess it up:
article/post.html (will save to article/post.html)
article  (will save to article.html but calls unique_name with just
"article" which by now exists).

Sorting the queue (but then it is no long a queue!) or better still:
checking unique_name after adjust extensions has produced a suffix would
fix this. Any one have any tips?
