I am not shure what you really expect, but the answer from the CGI is the same 
in Firefox as in wget (version 1.3.14). At least with your arguments.

The transfered HTTP response is simply incomplete. The last line is
Executing command = traceroute timeout 1 probe 1 source l0

I guess the CGI is buggy... at least it has nothing to do with wget at all.
