Something about the unzip program and/or options being used?  I seem to
remember some issues around this during development.  (Might check the

We used zip 2.3 to create the zip files, and it was working ok all
during testing with unzip 5.50.  install-tl.sh (aka install-compr.sh)
just does unzip -o -qq zipfile.zip.

If you just want to get on with life, try installing from the live
distribution, which doesn't need to unzip anything.
