Code Interpreter Sessions timing out before download links can be clicked

I have tried working directly with the model and what it considers a proper session time so that I can download a PPT file it is trying to create. This is not working. I got the following as part of the response from the 4o model after trying to have it adjust itself. After the first batch of python code gets built by the model I am getting this:

"It looks like there was an issue with generating the download link for the PowerPoint file. I will try another method to ensure you can download the presentation.

Let’s try creating the PowerPoint file again and making sure it saves properly."

Then after the second build I get this

"It looks like there was an issue generating the download link. I’ll try a different approach to ensure the file is properly created and you can download it.

Let’s ensure the session remains active long enough for you to download the file.

I will generate the PowerPoint file and provide you with the download link once again.

Please click the link below to download the PowerPoint file:"

The link it provided still did not work and is claiming Interpreter Session has timed out.

All of this was after I asked the model what file types it could create and got the following response:
" I can create various types of files, including but not limited to:

1. Text Files: .txt, .md, .rtf
2. Code Files: .py (Python), .js (JavaScript), .java (Java), .c (C), .cpp (C++), .html, .css, .json, .xml, .yml
3. Document Files: .pdf, .docx (Word), .odt
4. Spreadsheet Files: .xlsx (Excel), .csv
5. Presentation Files: .pptx (PowerPoint), .odp
6. Image Files: .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .bmp, .svg
7. Data Files: .db (SQLite), .sql
8. Compressed Files: .zip, .tar, .gz
9. Audio Files: .mp3, .wav
10. Video Files: .mp4, .avi, .mkv"

There have been a few reports of similar buggy behavior with file downloads in the last few days.
Unfortunately you probably have to wait until this gets fixed if you want to download the files via link.

I am having this problem as well. It cannot seem to create any file type for me to download, and keeps doing things as the original poster described.
