thanks for your report.  I know the metalink support is still very
unstable in the parallel-wget branch, that is why it is not yet merged
into master.

The parallel branch is quite hacky at the moment, so the plan is to
merge your new test-suite first and after proceed with a refactor of the
parallel-wget branch.  Unfortunately the parallel-wget code is quite
hacky and it requires some refactoring, that can be done in a safer
way with your new tests.
