Can you reproduce it?

I tried to reproduce it, but without any success. I mirrored
subdirectory with file (having same size, date and name as yours) from
vsftpd FTP server running on Linux using wget-1.11.4 to Linux client. On
second mirror I got message:

Remote file no newer than local file `router/pub/TEMP/testdir/Sent
Items.dbx' -- not retrieving.

So for some reason your wget does not check timestamp.
