Dolphin shows an option on a popup menu when the user drags a compressed archive with the option to decompress it. This menu is also shown when dropping an archive to a remote SFTP folder. However, in this case, when Dolphin decompress the archive it does it into the local folder where the archive is present not into the remote folder as expected.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
- Open two Dolphin windows.
- On the first window, open a folder with an archive file (tested with a tar.bz2 file).
- On the second window, open a remote folder through SFTP.
- Drag the archive from the first window to the second.
- Select "Extract here" in the popup menu.

Actual Results:  
Dolphin extracts the contents of the archive into the local folder (first window) instead of into the remote folder.

Expected Results:  
Dolphin should have extracted the archive on the remote folder.

I've reproduced the bug but the final result is a bit different: the file is uncompressed in my home directory even if the source file is in a subdirectory of ~/.
