Authors can't download submissions resubmitted for review

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
If an editor resubmits a submission for review, and chooses the last author version file to resubmit, that file is listed as a download option ("Author Version") on the author submission's Review page under Peer Review Round x; but if the author clicks the link, they are redirected to the submission's Summary page.
Editor Version link that works:
Author Version link that redirects:
The root cause of the problem here seems to be in SubmissionEditHandler, line 1030 (https://github.com/pkp/ojs/blob/master/pages/sectionEditor/SubmissionEditHandler.inc.php#L1030). That code was there since the first signoff integration pass, but it looks to me like its completely unnecessary. Unless anyone objects, I'll remove that tomorrow.
Matt, I'm not following; how does the presence of a signoff affect the author's ability to download a review file?
Alec, the existence of that signoff (actually the existence of the file ID in the signoff) causes the if block in line 550 of AuthorAction::downloadAuthorFile() to be true, and the if statement we want to be checking (and being true) for this case is on line 564 -- but that never gets checked.
OK; it's not clear to me why that signoff is being built, but it's being done wrong (it should copy to a new file) and in the wrong place (it looks like it might've been intended to move a file along automatically into copyediting, but this is a resubmit decision). Remove it.
The bad news: you're also going to have to see if you can figure out a way to correct existing data so the downloads don't continue to fail.
We could just move that if statement up above the one that checks the copyediting signoff? That way it will get checked first and return true.
Technically those signoffs shouldn't be there; it should be easy enough to look for files that are active in both review and editing signoffs and remove the signoffs in those cases. But make sure you run this past a couple of real-world data sets before you do it!
