Probably the recursive suck is not working because the page containing the
directory listing is not below the parent directory of the source page (i.e.,
wget doesn't move upward through the remote filesystem to keep you from
accidentally dowloading many unchecked gigs of stuff). I recall a switch
that customizes this behavior (the name escapes me at the moment) or you
could try http://www.quakeiii.com/downloads/maps/ as the source instead.
