Attached is a test archive grabbed from Ubuntu launchpad:

    "This file is compressed with a hungarian localized windows with
    iso-8859-2 character encoding, and it cannot be extracted using
    file-roller. The error message is caution: filename not matched:
    01_KB_eln\?k.pdf . The name of the file should be 01_KB_elnök.pdf
    (with double accented o)"

It extracts correctly with 7z, but not with bsdtar or unzip.  If that's good
enough for you I'll pull the unzip patch.
