That bug was mighty annoying. One of our internal applications is so broken it can't keep the original filenames and you end up with a "foo.gz" file when it should be "foo.tar.gz", and file-roller would just give you a "foo" file, then you're required to drop to a shell, etc. Shame that the original filename information isn't available in bzip2 archives...

I also had the time (and the idea, thanks Olimar) to check Totem for RTL issue. Surprisingly, didn't have to change much, GTK+ did quite a lot by itself. In the end, it was a matter of moving the fullscreen popups to the right hand-side, and swap the icons for previous and next.

Watched Good bye, Lenin!. Some damn good film that one. The German Amelie, or something.

Update: The nice RTL screenie.
