I couldn't reproduce the infinite looping, despite attempting to write a test to reproduce it (changeset e4aa17ab3086).

Punting for later, to give downstream bug reporters time to provide more information to reproduce.

Yes: that's part of the bug. The other part is that Wget apparently keeps trying to download, forever.

Bug seems invalid.

The progress bar is shown with all +'s and the output messages say there was 0 bytes needed for download.

The correct link is https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wget/+bug/153720 , not the one given.

When downloading a file from FTP with -c option and the file is already completely downloaded on the local PC, wget attempts to continue the download.

Problem still exists on version 1.11
