According to the packet capture the data coming from the web server did
not stop at 57004, it kept sending more data. I'm guessing here, but it
looks like wget is truncating the data at the specified content-length
where as the Java HTTP client seems to keep taking more data until it
decides it has seen too much and aborts (actually it may be aborting
when the XML reader chokes on seeing the second <?xml after the end of
the first 57k lump.)

Try the following out for yourself. This emulates a simplistic HTTP
client using netcat. The request is the same as the one from your packet

$ echo -e -n "GET /about/0.5/map?bbox=4.37,52.0,4.42,52.11 HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n" | nc thuis.kinkrsoftware.nl 8000 > out2.xml

I stopped this command after about 20 seconds. In this time it had read
2.6MB of data and was still going. According to the content-length at
the top of the returned data it should have only returned 969087 bytes.

Doing a quick grep through the data returned shows it tried to start the
XML document 3 times:

$ grep "<?xml" out2.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
