I can reproduce under Debian testing, but not Debian stable nor Mageia 1.

I think this is really a bug in recent Debian/Ubuntu wget. By instrumenting SocketServer, I see that less requests are received than expected (e.g. ~350 instead of 400). It seems wget is trying to send further requests on the same client socket, even though the server responded with a HTTP/1.0 status line and without a "connection: keep-alive" header, indicating it doesn't want keep-alive. Even explicitly sending a "connection: close" header doesn't seem to change wget's behaviour.

If you pass "--no-keep-alive" to wget, though, it solves the issue.

Running Wireshark would probably help confirm this.
