Neither .tar.lzma or .tlz are listed in 'Categories/filetypes' nor are
they shown as being a supported format for the unpack plugin.

In a main window if I select <foo>.tar.lzma I am not given any unpack
option and can use only the 'open with' option and use file-roller to
decompress the archive.

If I try to use plugins/unpack it gives the error 'Selected item is
not a supported archive'
