It's open for a long time, even has a proposed fix:

Interesting. However, it does not use gvfs as Sugar does internally (like when Sugar guesses the mimetypes on a USB stick). Instead it relies on "file", mislabeling Etoys projects as "application/zip". Also, it should guess by default. Which the fix proposed in the ticket above does, IIUC.
