This happened when I tried to extract a deb package to a folder which didn't exist. Xarchiver didn't create the folder, it extracted it to the home folder instead. With zips there are no such problems.

p7zip-full is installed. I created a 7z package of two files (one text file, one png image) via the context menu (right click -> create archive...) and then opened it in Xarchiver - here's the result:http://i.imgur.com/ip7WL.png
With ZIPs there's again no such problems but sometimes I need 7z. Also, I haven't found a way to create encrypted 7z archives.
The source code of PeaZip is available so it would be nice to have it in the repos.
edit: I searched a bit more and noticed that FreeArc has much less features than Peazip so it isn't that useful...
