Bug Description

The Android application Airdroid packs multiple files in a zip file when importing from a android device. This downloaded zip file when extracted yields to empty files, the same zip file when extracted with other archive managers( I tested with peazip and the command line utility unzip) produces the files contained in the zip correctly. On initial analysis I found the file permissions of the files in the zip having read only permissions and with sticky bit.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download multiple files from your android device using Airdroid app
2. Extract the downloaded zip file using ark
3. Check the file size of the extracted files with that of the expected ones

Actual Results:
Ark extracts files that are empty instead of extracting the zip correctly

Expected Results:
When the zip file with multiple files download with the android app Airdroid is extracted it should produce the files contained in the zip correctly.

Two of the lines I found interesting in the debug logs are below

Kerfuffle::Archive::create: Loading plugin "kerfuffle_libarchive"
