Oddities Part(2)

Ref. Zenwalk3.0 Firefox Xarchiver

From time to time, it happens that you download a file from the Internet that has an identical name to one already on your disk. This new file is renamed automatically to "Example(2)". Now that is a very good idea!
But, if this file is a compressed archive (gz, zip, etc.), Xarchiver wont extract it!
You have to rename the file, removing the brackets, and then Xarchiver does its job perfectly.

This odd behaviour is slightly annoying. What program actually adds the "(2)" part? Firefox, Thunar? And is it possible to change the brackets to something else?
