Hm, but that should work fine, because...

...wget is *not* instructed by jigdo to resume any partial downloads,
precisely for the reason that in situations like above, things would

Because the -c switch is not present, it will restart the download
every time, and never resume it. The first time, the file gets the
name rescue.bin, then rescue.bin.1, rescue.bin.2 etc.

Maybe you have set "continue = on" in your .wgetrc? Unfortunately,
wget has no --no-continue switch which I could use to override that
