...but Windows complained about the file format when I tried to launch
it. Then "file" told me...
$ file *.exe
setup-x86_64.exe: gzip compressed data, from Unix
...so I added suffix .gz and then used (actually) WinZip to unzip
it, and it created a working setup.exe.
So, is this new behavior? Is it to be expected going forward?
This behaviour is not expected or wanted. I can't reproduce it, either.

Do you have something in your ~/.wgetrc to add an "accept-encoding:
gzip" header or something?
