It works as I would expect in 1.11.4, with the exception of downloading this

Definitely a bug; reproduced with Ubuntu Lucid's wget 1.12.

Running with --debug, I see a lot of:

Deciding whether to enqueue "http://sourceforge.net/blog/";.
Going to "blog" would escape
"projects/biblatex-biber/files/biblatex-biber/current" with no_parent on.
Decided NOT to load it.

And then:

Deciding whether to enqueue "https://sourceforge.net/blog/";.
Allowing path blog/ because of rule `'.
Decided to load it.

That link was apparently found in https://sourceforge.net/account/login.php

So it looks like wget is correctly blocking the http URL, but
incorrectly permitting the https URL.

Adding -R login.php seems a decent workaround; I let it run awhile (not
forever), and it seemed okay, though it did get a single link (so far)
outside the expected hierarchy (once again, an https link; this time to
a wiki page; the page fortunately appears not to have incurred other
renegade links AFAICT).
