I stumbled upon a bug when downloading the Wiki from https://xwing-miniatures.fandom.com/wiki/X-Wing_Miniatures_Wiki as there were much more stylesheets in the original webpage than on the local directory, and it is really easy to reproduce. The problem is, that MediaWiki or at least the implementation at fandom.com uses ONE stylesheet generator which takes all stylesheets as parameter and delivers a ONE-IN-ALL stylesheet. This exceeds ~200 chars, and then gets truncated by wget. However, there are several stylesheets which differ only after these ~200 chars. So wget link-replaces only the last of these stylesheets. The more files you download, the more likely this problem happens. Unfortunatelly as the most important central stylesheet is missing due to that, the pages render completely unusable for local use in the Browser.

To reproduce:

1. create a file wget-test.html on your php enabled webserver with this content:

<title>wget bug demo</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="wget-stylesheet.php?v=1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890x1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890x1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890xA"/>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="wget-stylesheet.php?v=1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890x1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890x1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890xB"/>
    Hello amazing wget developers!

2. create a file wget-stylesheet.php with the following content:

/* irl this would generate a CSS based on the parameters */
echo '//v=' . htmlspecialchars($_GET["v"]);

p { }
    color: red;

3. run this command:

wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --html-extension --convert-links --restrict-file-names=windows --span-hosts http://localhost/wget-test/wget-test.html ==

Expected result:

three files downloaded, three files on disk, and all two <link rel="stylesheet" href="..."/> replaced.

Real result:

three files downloaded, but only two on the disk, and only the second <link rel="stylesheet" href="..."/> is replaced with the local file.
