# wget -r -O - http://www.blankwebsite.com

hangs forever, I can verify it with a strace. If I do this:

while read R
wget -r -O - http://www.blankwebsite.com
done < smallfile
with smallfile containing a single line, the command exits in a few seconds.

I tried also with

wget -r -O - localhost/test.html
with an empty test.html file, same results.

Everything runs fine changing -O - with -O myfile or removing -r.
