I am trying to download music files from amazon as described in this question, but in both banshee's amazon mp3 or firefox I am taken to Amazon's page asking me to install it's outdated i386 installer. I understand banshee >=2.0 can handle these .amz files, so I don't want to download and install amazon's old binary, but I can't seem to get amazon to let me past this step. What am I missing?

When selecting "download" from amazon's cloud-player, a popup appears that includes a link that says "already have the amazon downloader?" Clicking this starts the download dialog, and I can select banshee as the program to handle the .amz file, which imports the files successfully.
