Update of bug #51181 (project wget):

                  Status:                    None => Confirmed              


Follow-up Comment #3:

>From the mailing list (21./22.5.2017):

If you use an explicit logfile (-o / --output-file), that code for
creating 'wget-log' isn't triggered.

It is a documented behavior, see 'man wget':
"       -b
           Go to background immediately after startup.  If no output
file is specified via the -o, output is redirected to wget-log.

Maybe the implementation was buggy and didn't match the docs - and since 1.19
it has been fixed ?

Anyways, we want to keep backward compatibility and if that change breaks
existing scripts, we should revert the change and change the docs (I am sure
people dislike that as well ;-)).
