Not a bug. You have to specify the the file to read relative links from with the -i option. So
wget -B http://somehost/somedir/ -i file.txt
would result in
wget http://somehost/somedir/<relative_link>
for every relative_link found in file.txt

Thu 10 Apr 2008 10:32:29 AM UTC, original submission:


wget -B http://somehost/somedir/ file.txt

sets the window title into

wget http://file.txt

which should be

wget http://somehost/somedir/file.txt
