Binary package hint: zip

well i use the zip compression, but it may be found in others

the bug is specific, the scenario is like these:

i have a folder named "example", inside i have some files and one named "example.zip", so i select all files, and right click them, and choose compress, then a dialog offers me the name example.zip for the new compressed file, i choose ok, then another dialog tells me that i cannot put the file example.zip inside a file named example.zip in the same folder

what i expect to happen: nothing, no file is compressed, the folder keeps equal

instead happen: the old example.zip is deleted !

the release is ubuntu 8.04

thanks for your work
