What output do you get with these two commands?

wget -d --post-file=file http://www.web.site.org/ 2>&1 | grep ^Content

wget -d --post-data=".." http://www.web.site.org/ 2>&1 | grep ^Content

if the output is identical, then please attach the full debug log
(remove the pipe to grep) for both commands.
