I'm in a similar situation, my test file raises this:

File name in directory "windows\TEMP\\test123.txt" and header "C:\windows\TEMP\\test123.txt" differ.

It turns out that I can't find any cross platform procedures for processing the paths between the different platforms. And there are other things like doing it in portable way; os.path.split() nor os.path.basename() won't touch windows paths on un*x, etc...

So, I'd like to propose an easy way, just allow the process to extract the files (and print a warning message) rather that just raising an exception (raise BadZipfile,...) and stopping the extraction altogether.
