    My Archive Utility.app is acting weird, when clicking on .tar files to unarchive them, archive utility instead archives them into a .cpio archive. I've tried to open the Archive Utility from /System/Library/Core Services and tried to extract them from there, but nothing happens.

    Also tried to reinstall the utility using Pacifist, but with no luck.

    Anyone having the same problem?

    I could do that. But the archive utility worked perfectly well in Tiger, and I just wonder why it doesn't work in Leopard. I would rather not have to have lots of un-archiving utilities to be able to extract a simple tar file. Of course I could use the command line, but I'm lazy... ;)
