Bug Description

Download a zip-file from somewhere.
Rename it from something.zip to something (remove the .zip extension)
The file will still be recognized as a zip file and can be opened with file-roller.
When trying to delete or add files to the archive, it cannot find the archive. Because the zip and unzip functions automatically appends the .zip to the file which (in our case) does not exist.

I'm able to add/delete files into/from the archive even after renaming it.

Which version of ubuntu are you on?

I'm on gutsy. Installed it today.
