Same Key Pair manual download gives other private key while keeping the same public key???

I have created a Key Pair. Intructed the new instance to use this new key. Downloaded the key "A key pair named 'merge' was successfully created. This key pair should automatically download. If not, you can manually dowload this keypair at the following link:" manually by following the link. Then I said to the instance to not use that key by clicking "-" and then I "+" it again to use it for that instance and then asked to download again the private key. The surprize was that it differs from the previous one but the public key is the same. Please let me know why this happens. I know RSA is one to one key, one public and one private. not one public and many privates as I get when downloading manually. Hope I was clear enought, if not let me know and I will try explaining better.
