.kra files missing

Hi Krita devs,

I've been looking for a good 16-bit capable photo editor on OS X (for  
under $600 ;-) and ended up installing Krita 1.6.3 from MacPorts.  I'm  
quite happy with what I've tried -- I was able to remove some pesky  
shadows from a favorite photo of mine without dropping to 8-bit and I  
liked the interface.  However, there was one rather bad problem.  In  
mid-stream I saved my work, choosing the native .kra format to  
preserve layers & selections.  Later I found that there was no .kra  
file anywhere.  Instead, I have a folder with the name I chose for the  
file containing some xml files and sub-folders.  Here's the directory  

[n8gray at golux]% ls -AR ~/Desktop/selected-shadow
built image/      documentinfo.xml  maindoc.xml       preview.png

/Users/n8gray/Desktop/selected-shadow/built image:
annotations/ layers/

/Users/n8gray/Desktop/selected-shadow/built image/annotations:

/Users/n8gray/Desktop/selected-shadow/built image/layers:
layer0      layer0.icc  layer1      layer1.icc

My guess is that this stuff was supposed to be archived into a single  
file or something, but I guess something went wrong.  I tried zipping  
it up and changing the extension to .kra but that didn't seem to  
work.  I would really like to recover this work -- can you suggest  

BTW, I'm really looking forward to 2.0 being ready.
