Bug Description

Reproduce way:
1) Take an archive with inner archive (any deb package suits this).
2) Open parent archive through "Open with "Archive Manager"" context menu entry.
3) Double click on any inner archive in order to open it with new File Roller instance.
4) Close parent File Roller instance.
5) Try to extract any file from child archive
6) Proof

I tested it with debian package.

I think this is how it should be. When you open the inner archive, it is unpacked from the outer archive to a temporary location. When you close the outer archive, everything is cleaned up, and the temporary inner archive file is deleted. After that, you can't extract anything from it.
So this is actually expected behaviour.

Of course I noticed this in error message, but it shouldn't be so.
