Thanks Assaph, I had the same issue.
Under the previous instiki version for OSX it worked fine. The file  
unzipped automatically on the desktop after export. In the latest  
version for OSX it doesn't do that anymore.
I am not a programmer so I don't have a clue why. I'm just using the  
older version for now.
Cheers, Crelis
