A very pertinent point, that I'm surprised hadn't occurred to anyone
else yet.

Wget has had >2GB support since at least 1.10.x, but I think it may need
to be built in - it's entirely possible that copy of wget was built
without it (somehow).

It's also conceivable that 32-bit file problems persist in the Windows
code, that is fixed in the Unix code. Or it could be problems with the
system libraries for Cygwin or MinGW (whichever was used to build it).

And it could also be the server failing to handle ranged requests
reaching into that domain, though that would be a strange problem indeed
for kernel.org to have...
