No such luck in my case.  wget does indeed retry, but with the exact same
URI handling.  The reason the second try succeeded in my earlier example is
that GitHub happened to return a new URL without a %2B in it.  Sometimes
that does not occur, and wget gives up after --max-redirect retries.  For
example, search for "Fetching openslidejava" in this log file:
