wget 1.14 supports "--reject-regex". This has to be used instead of -X when a regex is specified.

I found old bug reported for SLE9


By using the double star (as suggested in the bug) it is now working.

(file #28343)

The files #28342 #28340 and #28341 are comming from x86_64 gentoo net-misc/wget-1.14

But I was able to replicate the bug on
wget | package | 1.11.4-1.15.1 | x86_64
from SLE11SP2
