If I remember correctly from the Torrent FAQs, this problem is caused by a MIME-map problem. Just change the ".zip.zip" to ".zip.torrent". I may be wrong, though. I suggest you read the Torrent FAQs.

To read the torrent FAQs, visit this topic:

If you do not know what this "torrent"-thingie is all about, read this topic:

A torrent is a file containing information about a download. When opened with a torrent client, it will start downloading small packages of the files the torrent links to. A torrent download has many advantages:
-It can be paused/resumed at any time.
-You can help distribute the file while you download.
-It reduces eventual bashing on mirror servers since torrent downloads are runned from common home computers.
-Et cetera...

Good luck, and seed the scene! :)
