The /S option for ZIP in v12 build 24 is not working for me. If I enter a
command like:
*zip /s test.zip test.txt
I am prompted for a password but the zip file does not appear to be
encrypted. I can extract test.txt without having to enter a passwrod.

Also, if I use TCC's UNZIP command on an encrypted zip file that was created
with another program but give the wrong password, I am just told that there
was an error in the archive for the member I am trying to extract. TCC V11
gives a much more meaningful "Incorrect password" message.

This turns out to be a bug in the zip library. I have a query pending with
the developers.
