Guest Download Servlet

I have a space which I want anonymous users to have read access to, so  I've added the guest account to the space as a Consumer.  This works fine with CIFS and the mapUnknownUserToGuest file system param. 

When I try accessing files in the space via web link:

http://localhost:8080/alfresco/download/direct/workspace/SpacesStore/7c8b1d88-aa66-11dc-a6e6-2f47ceab4bbc/test.txt

I get redirect to the login page.  I check the log which shows:

WARN  [org.alfresco.web.app.servlet.AuthenticationHelper] Unable to login as Guest: Access Denied.  You do not have the appropriate permissions to perform this operation.

I've added guest=true as an arugment and tried the guestDownload servlet.  It's pretty much an out of the box deployment, so I can't see what would cause the issue.  Any ideas?
