  I've stored two tcpdumps of fetch & wget conversations.  Currently
I've no explanation of what's caused that difference in behaviour of
fetch and wget.
  When the file is fetch-ed there are lost two packet fragments from
server side (right after 'ack 4345').  Subsequent starts of fetch
gave the same result in tcpdump's output.
  Here are the tcpdumps: http://chaos.ukrhub.net/ftp5.de/
