You'll want to know what headers are being passed around, and what
redirects are happening. (Adding the trailing slash would be the first
thing I'd try.)

See the developer tools (F12, then network tab) in Firefox.
And add `-S` to your wget line to print the headers sent by HTTP servers.

This was interesting, so I've tried a couple things.
It boiled down to gzip compression. When client doesn't ask for it, server
throws the towel :D (see: `--compressed` flag for curl.)
