[racket-dev] saving .scrbl file OS X message box

Dear Heavens, this is the most unpleasant message box I've seen in a while, when trying to save a file with the extension "scrbl" in OS X 10.6.4:

<bold>You cannot save this document with extension ".scrbl" at the end of the name. The required extension is ".".</bold>

You can choose to use both, so that your file name ends in ".scrbl".

... uh?

I'm guessing that we deduced that by requiring the extension "." only, OS X would allow us  to save with any extension we liked, but the resulting message box is appalling; I vote for going back to what we had before....

Apologies if I'm misunderstanding something, here.
