I'm not aware of any problems related to this issue when actually using wget. I 
merely ran the test suite, noticed it failed, searched to see if that failure 
was known, and was thus reminded that I had reported the failure years ago, and 
my report appeared to have gotten lost or forgotten, so I was bringing it back 
to the developers' attention again. A test suite should verify the software 
functions properly. If a test suite fails, one is left to wonder if the problem 
is in the software being tested or in the test suite itself. Fixing the test 
suite would eliminate that uncertainty.
