Bug Description

When I tried to drag the file named "estudo_stilingue\O_Espiritismo_de_Chico_Xavier_aos_olhos_da_Intelig├кncia_Artificial_(pesquisa).pdf" from the attached to my home directory, the result was a directory named "estudo_stilingue" and a file "O_Espiritismo_de_Chico_Xavier_aos_olhos_da_Intelig├кncia_Artificial_(pesquisa).pdf" inside it.

In fact, maybe the correct behaviour would be to show the directory "estudo_stilingue" and the pdf inside it in file-roller itself.

I'm using Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 and file-roller 3.22.3

Here's the original link for the zip archive
