Put this line in your gpg.conf:
This behavious is from the time that DOS didn't support double extensions
(actually, since the "dot" was never stored in the filesystem, it didn't
support a dot in a filename).
Since GnuPG never ran on plain MS-DOS I'm not sure why they programmed this
default. I believe some very old win95 versions also had problems with it.
