Default [Q] Download Manager keeps giving same notifications?

Everytime I download something download manager gives me all the notifications of everything I've downloaded since I cleared the cache and data for download manager. After I clear the cache and data it clears the recently downloaded things but.. Starts building up the notifications again until I clear the cache and data again. It's very annoying.. I've tried to make ADM(Advanced Download manager) my default but it never asks me when I start downloading something if I want to use ADM.. Soit just uses download manager. I've tried using, Default App Manager to change the default for downloads but ADM doesn't show up in the list of apps. Please help.

I'm running CM 11 on an s4

I think this is a bug in download manager. I don't know of a fix. But I've noticed on my Nexus 4 that it only keeps displaying notifications again if you don't dismiss the download notification before shutting down or rebooting if that helps at all. When it does happen, just like you said you can go and clear the cache of download manager.
