If you proxy with the user that has ran the second version of the same bundle, you will see the link to download the report and the download button for the report that you have ran will be not available.

Resolution

You have to run the bundle with your own user to get the link to download the report. The system will run the bundle with the user permissions and this is the reason why other user will not be able to download a report ran by another user.
