PGP Zip with a single file?

I'm using GNUPG to decrypt files that were created as PGP Zip archives using 
PGP Desktop.  If there are multiple files in the archive then GNUPG extracts 
a TAR file, and I have no problem processing it from there.  The problem is 
when there is only one file in the PGP Zip archive it can have a filename 
completely different than the filename of the archive file, which would be 
just fine if it were still stored in a TAR file, but when GNUPG decrypts the 
archive it outputs the original file, not a TAR file.  PGP Desktop still 
displays the original file name when you open the archive, is there any way 
to get this file name using GNUPG?
