Wget should issue strings-of-CWDs to get where it wants, and then retrieve the file. And then perhaps fallback to other methods, like:

  CWD a/b
  RETR c


  RETR a/b/c

For restarting, it should save the respose from an initial PWD, to see what directory it should be searching from. It should not try to prepend that value to form an absolute CWD command, as some servers will use one convention in their PWD, while accepting alternative conventions (such Unix-style) for CWD... but not both concatenated!
