Follow-up Comment #1, bug #51181 (project wget):

an additional comment from a Debian user:

This has hit many and is already reported in several distributions, but not in
Debian yet.

Since 1.19, when run in the background, even with --quiet, wget creates a log
file wget-log in the current directory, which is normally empty.
If wget-log exists, it creates wget-log.1, and so on.

The workaround is to use -o /dev/null, but this changed behaviour breaks
existing scripts and is undocumented.
