What version of Windows are you running?
What compression tools do you have installed?

I am running only stock Windows XP with WinZIP installed.  I've tried it on 
3 machines at work and mine at home.  With IE it always comes out 
"...tar.tar".  Firefox and Netscape do save it correctly as "...tar.bz2", 
and claim it is a WinZip file, but WinZIP can't open it.  WinZIP 9 says 
"invalid archive".

As to the comment on "better" compression.  We're only saving about 2 meg 
here.  Look at the 1.3.8400 release, where it was in "tar.gz" and 
"tar.bz2".  Is 2 meg really all that important in the scheme of 
things?  It's just a little more than a floppy.  Is someone trying to 
download over 28.8 bps?
