Description Ralf Corsepius 2005-10-19 03:48:15 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050923 Fedora/1.7.12-1.5.1

Description of problem:
wget -c seems broken:

a) Corrupts .listing files.
b) Traverses subdirs multiple times.

Sorry for the imprecise description, cf. below for details ...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mirror an arbitrary ftp-directory, e.g.: 
wget --cut-dirs=6 -m -nH \
2. Have a look into the corresponding .listing file,
e.g. repodata/.listing

3. Issue the same command as under 1., but now with "-c" added:
wget --cut-dirs=6 -m -nH -c \

Actual Results:  a) .listing is incorrect (Contains duplicated entries).
b) wget -c bogusly recurses the directory multiple times, instead of one.

Expected Results:  a) Correct .listing
b) Wget traversing directories once.

This had worked with former version of wget.

Additional info:

This issue seems to have appeared with wget-1.10.1-0.fc4.
Former versions did not expose this bug.

Wget-1.10 to me is completely nonfunctional and should be withdrawn/replaced.

Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2006-09-25 11:43:22 EDT
wget-1.10.2-6 still appends to .listing instead of rewriting it, but resumed
downloads seem to work now.
