The behavior you described, is because you haven't properly quoted the
*. The shell will interpret * first, and if there is even a single file
in the current directory, the shell will expand to that file (and any
others), BEFORE it calls wget. Make sure to quote the * properly (say,
-R "*", instead of -R *)
