I have discovered a seriously strange thing, FTP connections seem to be to 
blame... wget on my pc (ubuntu) also seems to hang when the download 
completes, wget just doesn't terminate, I have to do a ctrl-c. Ive had this 
problem for ages but actually forgot about it, It doesn't happen when I try 
download small (<1mb) files though? I switched the openbsd PKG_PATH on the 
virtual machine to an HTTP mirror and everything is working perfectly. Does 
anybody have any idea what the problem is?

This is very annoying as when I want to wget an entire directory, wget will 
hang after the first file so I have to kill the process and download the 
next one manually each time...
