No idea why you get a count to 100% twice, but you're clearly bumping
into the timeout.

For now, I'd rather have the file size limit prevent these files from
getting bigger and bigger. ;-)

Only these 3 .chr files should be included in the main archive:
ascii.chr, digits.chr, and lm_ascii.chr.  The rest, when needed, may be
obtained separately, such as from john-extra-20130529.tar.xz on the JtR
homepage.  We're not including all possible wordlists along with JtR -
so why include all possible .chr files?

Perhaps there's network congestion somewhere between you and the wiki.
It's a long route.  As a test, I downloaded linux-3.16.3.tar.xz to the
wiki server separately from 3 IP addresses that resolves to: has address has address has address

These completed as follows:

80502284 bytes transferred in 52 seconds (1.48M/s)
80502284 bytes transferred in 47 seconds (1.62M/s)
80502284 bytes transferred in 47 seconds (1.63M/s)

That's not fast, but it's above 10 Mbps too.
