i've just posted my comments on the mailinglist [1]. wget doesn't behave the right way if i use the out --output-document option and --timestamping together. wget tries to compare the url-file with the original file instead with the --output-document file.

why i got to this problem was because i need to download a file periodically and save it under another name then the original. (e.g. a webcam picture). i know that i could use (sym)links for that but it would be cleaner if it would work with wget directly.
