I apologize for responding to my own email, but I thought others might want to know.
This turned out to be a Safari-dependent problem. Lots of other people have complained, but there doesn't seem to be any direct fix. My quick solution was to make sure the downloaded file is gzipped. This kills two birds with one stone -- the download is smaller, and Safari doesn't mess with the extension. Now, does anyone know if it is possible to gzip a dataset from a history within Galaxy prior to downloading?
