[ale] [OT] gmail attachment - "download all" bug

I just got an email with 4 attached word docs. Normal enough.
gmail allows me to "download all" which causes a zip file to be downloaded.
I then unzip it. Easy.
Except, at least 2 of the docs are then identified by Office as corrupt.
I repeat the process but just download the files one at a time. All is good.
Apparently gmail / zip / unzip process is not perfect.
fyi: I did this originally in Linux, but re-did it on a Windows 2008
server with winzip and MS-office as the test tools. Same behavior.
