Check the license again

The license always says this The "Program" not this particular copy of the software where the GPL v2 says:
The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law
So even downloading alternative version of the source code does not give you a new "Program". Consequently another download does not wipe out section 4 of the license because you must deal with the "program". But I am sure a lot of people would like that a new event removes any previous wrongness associated with that event like buying a new car to erase the fact that you still have or had same exact car that was illegal obtained.
