Bug Description

Binary package hint: file-roller

If a filename of the archive does not contains an extension (e.g. *.zip) adding files to the archive leads to creation of a new archive instead changing original one.

- create a ZIP archive and name it 'foo' (not '')
- open it in FileRoller
- add a new file to the archive by dragging some file from Nautilus to FileRoller window

Expected behavior - dragged file should be added to the 'foo' archive
Current behavior - a new archive named '' is created, dragged file is added to this archive

Ubuntu 7.10, file-roller-2.20.1-0ubuntu1
