I cannot reproduce this bug report. On the other hand, checking the packets using Wireshark, I saw all three required packets, FIN, FIN-ACK and ACK when wget is sent SIGINT.

a forwarded bug report http://bugs.debian.org/657219

wget should handle SIGINT to close the connection.
interrupting, with CTRL C for example, does not close it.

this causes a big amount of incoming packets wich causes outgoing RST packets.

there is definately no FIN packet, i confirmed that with wireshark.

BTW: version 1.14 is missing in the bug report release drop down box.

Thank you.
