Well true, but also not: This is a user error. Plone doesn't give the
file a name at all, but you have to give the filename yourself. It's
in the "edit" tap, but you also get asked for a filename when

The "edit" tab has two fields: "Name" and "Title". With the power of
an admin I looked at what "Name" Tim gave, and that's "loopool63". He
*should* have given a "Name" like "loopool63.tar.bz2" instead. 
The "Title" of that file is "Loopool 63" btw.

There are a several files on the site, where owners gave wrong names.
