Nope, it doesn't. Don't know why yours did, but I assure you if this were a widespread case (as you imply), everyone using push email would have complained by now!
My AS is always on (use a "live" exchange server), and I download files on a regular basis. Everything works great!
Sorry bud, AS being on shouldn't effect anything really. Maybe you're having other problems that coincidentally stopped when you freed up more memory?
