decryption does not create file HELP!

I encrypted a file funny.tar.gz with Kgpg and deleted the original. What I was left with was funny.tar.gz.asc

I would often decrypt this file to view its contents and it all worked nice. But NOW I dont know why when I decrypt this file with the passphrase, the decryption is successful but it does not create the unencrypted file so how do I view its contents! Normally whenevr I decrypt something, it creates a decrypted file for me which can be easily viewed but now its NOT happening! The decryption is going OK but no viewable files are being created!

Plz tell me how to get around this problem as I have VERY VERY IMPORTANT personal data stored in funny.tar.gz.asc

I've never used kgpg but on the comandline you can simply do

gpg -d file.asc > decrypted.file
