unzip can't set directory attributes

In the latest hrevs (I have hrev51670) when unzip finds a directory in a zipfile that it has to create, it throws an error: "Error writing file attributes." This didn't happen in my older system (hrev50180).
To demonstrate, create a folder with Tracker -- "DUMMY", say -- and put another "SUBDUMMY" within it. Zip it up, and then unzip it:
> zip -r dummy.zip DUMMY adding: DUMMY/ (stored 0%) adding: DUMMY/SUBDUMMY/ (stored 0%) > rm -r DUMMY > unzip dummy.zip Archive: dummy.zip creating: DUMMY/ Error writing file attributes. creating: DUMMY/SUBDUMMY/ Error writing file attributes. >
If you use Expander, it will pause with an alert each time; it will continue, but it's annoying...
I'd assume this is an OS problem, rather than unzip itself, as the latter probably hasn't changed much. (Sorry -- not sure what heading this comes under, so I've left it "General")
