Hi, Group,

I used to be able to create a new notebook by these two commands

touch foo.nb
open foo.nb

But after upgrading to V7, foo.nb is treated as a text file and saving  
the file will just save the textural content of the notebook and lose  
all the structures.  Is there anyway to get the old behavior back,  
namely let Mathematica treat an empty file with an nb suffix as an  
empty notebook file?
