Closing as "won't fix": this would be the same if you had any code which tried to do os.mkdir ("aux"). By way of comparison, Info-ZIP's UnZip returns "checkdir error: aux exists but is not directory" which actually seems less useful!

I don't believe it's the responsibility of the zipfile module (or tarfile or bz2 or any other) to silently reinterpret the names of files -- how would any code in the package expecting "aux/code.c" cope with the name change?
