If you are using wget -c and have a partial file already downloaded,
if the server responds with a 200 OK instead of a 206 Partial Content
- meaning the server now starts sending from the start of the file
again and doesn't support a 206, wget will actually take the starting
bytes coming in and apply them to the middle of the file!

What it should do is see the 200 OK and know that the 206 failed and
just start the file over again (and hope the download finishes).
