Downloads renewal takes ages

Could you explain why the following occurs.

When adding a file to Project -> Downloads it will be available right away. But, when i override a file with a newer version it takes a long time for those changes to take effect on the server. It sometimes takes a couple of hours for the downloads to update and during this time people whom are trying to download the file get the old cached version.

I understand downloads is not really a feature but more of an extra but i am just curious if this is normal behavior.

    We use Amazon to host these files and re-using the same file name can take quite a while for their caches to update. We can't really have too much of an impact on this. I'd recommend using unique file names if possible.
