Actually, this is just reflective of my lack of understanding how -X works. -X is used to match against full paths (or, according to bug 20518, prefixes); not suffixes. And * in fnmatch() (just as in shells) does not match '/'. We need a "**". Changing the bug description accordingly.

(No guarantee this will be done for 1.11.1; that's a tentative assignment. It's not a regression over 1.10.2, so that lowers its criticality.)

Apparently, with -X '!COMPLETE' (and variations with wildcards, including without the !), wget still downloads .listing files and contents from a directory named !COMPLETE; but not at the root directory level.
