I can reproduce the described behavior with wget 1.18.

But it seems to be fixed in trunk (= alpha release 1.19).

BlumeSimonCh21.pdf appears two times, one as relative URL (being loaded) and as absolute URL to a different host (not being loaded).

Bernoulli.pdf appears only once as absolute URL to a different host (not being loaded).

When running wget -r -k -l 1 "http://econ.ucsb.edu/~tedb/Courses/GraduateTheoryUCSB/TheoryF16.html", the process successfully completes but a number of files are not downloaded and a number of absolute link are not converted. For example, the file "BlumeSimonCh21.pdf" is linked twice in the html source code, one as relative and another as absolute path, both belonging to the same host. The latter links to the actual website over the internet rather than linking to the local file. Moreover, the file "Bernoulli.pdf" is not downloaded by wget despite being in the same host directory. I tried adding `-H` to the wget command, these problems still occur.

Some other notes: The manual says when `-r` is specified, wget downloads simply overwrite the old file with the new one if they are the same file.
