wget and sourceforge.net downloads

I've noticed on one download using wget that sourceforge.net appends all 
kinds of garbage to the right end of downloads from sourceforge.net.  
With wget does any way exist to prevent sourceforge.net from doing this 
and saving to the correct file name on the local system?  I downloaded 
nvda_2012-3-1.exe from sourceforge.net and had to use an mv command to fix 
the file name after the fact.  I copied everything in the file name up to 
one character before the first question mark then moved what 
sourceforge.net downloaded to that correct file name.
