Bug Description

I have a .zip file.

When I try to extract a directory called "moo[AB]", it fails and I get an error.

"An error occurred while extracting files.
caution: filename not matched: #1/moo[AB]/
caution: filename not matched: #1/moo[AB]/01.jpg
caution: filename not matched: #1/moo[AB]/02.jpg"

Directories without the characters [ and ] works fine extracting.
The archive works fine extracting in other software such as 7-Zip in Wine.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better, but I can't reproduce it; please tell me what version you use. Can you also give us an archive as example ?
This will help us to find and resolve the problem.
