Just try to use ping -c <count>
so you'll get the shell back...

I didn't test wget, because it's used to crash when I try to launch
I'm not sure those are endian problems. It may be timer problem or worse
I have a new implementation of time-base/decrementer which makes Linux
guest timings to be connected to reality.
This also boosts the emulation by a factor of 2 or 3. I'm reworking
exception management, which is not well implemented and may be buggy.
This will also improve speed and (I hope) solve some emulation problems.

'-S' option is really simple: it just stops qemu just before starting
the emulation. You then have to enter the 'c' command in qemu monitor to
let it run.
You now have a PPC register dump in the monitor, too with 'info
The use of gdb is not easy when you emulate the whole system. I only use
it to solve kernel problems. For userland problems,
the best way may be to launch gdb in the guest system  :-)
