A dialog box pops up titled "Downloading Python-2.2.2.tgz.tar" giving me the choice of opening the file with WinZip or saving it to disk. The first thing to notice is the ".tar" added to filename on the dialog box title. If I click on "save this file to disk" and click OK, another dialog box appears titled "Enter name of file to save to...". Again the filename automatically entered has had a ".tar" added to it. This is incorrect, the filename should just be "Python-2.2.2.tgz" NOT "Python-2.2.2.tgz.tar". This does not happen if I download the file using FTP by clicking on the link at the very bottom of the page that ends with "ALl the above file can be found via FTP, too." I tried the same web page in old NS v4.79 and did not encounter this problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. see details above 2. 3. Actual Results: see details above Expected Results: No bogus extension appended to filename. There's an easy workaround, just delete the appended extension. However, I don't think it's minor. Many people won't notice or figure out what's going wrong until later, if ever. In my case I didn't notice until I tried to open the file myself with WinZip and got an error message. I went to the trouble of sending WinZip an error report and re-download the rather large file several times before I noticed what was going on.
