Are you sure it's getting downloaded at all?? 
In my case I could (in another window) watch the file grow as it was 
saved, then
'bad stuff' happened right at the end.

Also, not familiar with recycle versions=true .... so don't know what 
that param
does, but so far, the behavior you are seeing, is sounding different 
from ones I
thought it might have been related to...  hmmm...

Sorry my attempts to correlate information haven't been successful...
