In my case the problem is with SourceForge.net. Actually I was trying to download these files:
Something did not went good, so I logged wget, and the log file was:

As you can see in this log file, I end up in getting a single HTML file :(
This shows that wget doesn't waits on the page to let webpage to redirect it to another location, and it downloads the page itself.
I want those two files, with wget, how can I?
