Follow-up Comment #11:

The 'timeout' command puts wget into background.

If you either leave it away or use --foreground with 'timeout', you won't see
wget-log. You can use --timeout=25 for wget if you need a timeout.

But that's a work-around. The issue is that wget behaves contrary to the
manual which says "--background: If no output file is specified via the -o,
output is redirected to wget-log".

I re-open the issue.
