Hi guys, I have had this nuisance ever since the Podcasts app was released back a few months ago. Despite me running the latest version of the app, there are still random podcasts, whose newest episodes would not automatically download (on a completely random basis) despite me having enabled "Auto-download" and "Episodes to Keep" - "Last 3 Episodes".

A possibly related issue occurring on the same random basis: when I sometimes tap on the download arrow next to an episode, the app would simply "think it over" for about 15 seconds with the download button showing it's pushed (tapped) and then the podcast would not download with the arrow button un-tapping itself. Anyone experienced similar issues. If yes - any solutions. Looks like a bug to me.
