I'm having problems with extracting zip archives that are sfx, self extracting archives, with java.util.zip. Anyone knows this problem?

I think the problem is that such a self extracting archive is not a ZIP file at all. It probably has a built-in ZIP file, with the self extracting part wrapped around it.
