Oops, passing a unicode literal to extract()'s member arg wouldn't be sufficient.

The extract() method quietly converts strings to ZipInfo objects via getinfo(member_string). Then _extract_member() takes the filename attribute of that ZipInfo object, which causes problems when when THAT is unicode.

So I guess this bug only applies to archives with unicode member paths.

Attached is one such file to aid in troubleshooting.
