This have to be fixed as soon as possible. The use of Ark on Kubuntu is "dangerous" because that can lead to data loss (zip from dropbox corrupted if extracted with ark, dummy file extracted if the archive is password protected, etc...).

To avoid this I use file-roller until these problems are fixed...
