I just tried your above example and it works for me (404 not found for each url though).
[kadath:~]$ wget -i test.txt

[kadath:~]$ cat test.txt

I'd suggest having a closer look at your urllist.txt file:
[kadath:~]$ cat -vet test.txt

The -vet parameters instruct cat to display all the usually unprintable characters.
The $ symbol at the end is the linefeed/newline character. I'm wondering if you might have some ^M characters in there too indicating a carriage return, or some tabs or other rubbish at the start of the line - those can upset a lot of programs and might be causing your trouble.
