I found this trouble in wget-1.12 which is not in gnuwin32 currently. (there's now 1.11)
Also I found why this occurs: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg00755.html
1.11 hasn't this trouble.
This is a known issue and has been fixed in wget mainline. I am waiting for a new wget release but if it's not forthcoming I'll look into what changes are in mainline and I'll either compile from that or just patch the unsupported scheme issue alone.
Thank you for your report
I patched wget 1.12.1 devel to fix this issue. 07-04-2010
