Personally, I just removed the double periods check. It will still check the last extension for forbiden extensions. Just make sure you got a desent filetype.rules.conf to rely on

Ämne: File extension issue

Ran into this issue, user is running Mac OS X which can use multiple periods in the filename.
Don't suppose there is a work around besides disabling file checks?
