Calibre can't find zipped plugins

Using 0.8.5-1 on Arch linux, Calibre cannot see zipped plugins. After I click 'Add a new plugin' and navigate to the folder, Calibre (which is looking only for file type 'Plugins') cannot see the zipped files which are in the folder. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a bug?

In case it's relevant, when I tried replacing this package with a bzr package (9295) I have lying around, I got the error message:

Besides the intriguing Polish, there is a bit about import plugins there which I thought might be relevant. Trying to download the latest bzr version fails:

Not seeing zip files is an interaction between Qt and your desktop environment. Use the command line tool

calibre-customize to add plugins instead.

I just tried

bzr branch lp:calibre

and it works fine for me.

Thanks for the quick response - worked perfectly. I mentioned my bzr problem just to explain why I didn't try the latest bzr version; I think my issue is with my own set-up there.
