Sorry, I've been really ill for several days. It's not the packaging system, it's the "update-notifier" that does the downloading. It appears that it used to be the package's responsibility to clean up the downloads and now it's the responsibility of the update-notifier. What they _should_ do is make it backward-compatible and say "delete this file if it exists, if it does not exist then proceed as normal".
