Hi Caroline!

You are a bit of a moving target, I don't know what XS you are using,
or what Sugar you are using. And which ds-backup you are using, with
which of Hamilton's many versions of the fixup paches (vanilla Sugar
would normally not have backup).

So... I dunno! You probably need to do a bit of debugging yourself to
diagnose the situation.

That sounds _very_ wrong. Moodle should be serving the backups with a
special mimetype that Sugar recognizes as a Journal Entry Bundle -- so
the Journal unpacks it and imports it (hence showing the right name,
and type).

Yes. I hate to say it, but "it works for me".
