It taken us while to finally replicate this issue, seem when you have docx file open with word then upload that file to Mahara, it uploads as a zip file.

If we upload docx file that not currently open with word then it upload it, it upload correctly as docx file.

I'm aware the docx file are indeed just zip file, but I've not sure why when file is currently open and then try to upload it this issue happens.
