wget closes the connection after every 416 responce. For example I do

wget http://localhost/file1 http://localhost/file2

then wget sends:

GET /debian/dists/sid/Release HTTP/1.0
Range: bytes=151784-
User-Agent: Wget/1.12 (linux-gnu)
Accept: /
Host: localhost
Connection: Keep-Alive

I then reply with:

HTTP/1.1 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable
Date: Sat, 07 May 2011 15:10:58 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.9 (Debian) DAV/2
Connection: Keep-Alive
Keep-Alive: timeout=15, max=498
Content-Length: 0

and wget closes the connection instead of sending the next request.
