As Eli wrote, I used to have this off-by-1 error too. But with
the Git master, it's no longer the case.

But the '--limit-rate' option (I forgot about that completely), the
progress-bar seems a bit different as compared to d/l at full speed.

Compare the attached image wget-progress-1.png:
  wget --show-progress --quiet -np -r www.watt-32.net/watt-doc/

VS wget-progress-2.png:
  wget --show-progress --quiet --limit-rate=2k -np -r www.watt-32.net/watt-doc/

I think it's a bit strange the final d/l speed isn't "sticky" in both cases.
Is it because the speed is too high?

I'm on Win-10, Wget/MSVC-2015. Captures by Greenshot:
