Error I cant really explain with out a picture

I am trying to really use Sigil for the first time to put together study material. I used http://www.web2fb2.net/ to take pages from wikipedia and convert them to ePub but I cannot open them in Sigil.
It complains about permission being denied...
I was able to open the ePub with Calibre, B&N reader, Adobe DE...

This is on OSX Snow Lepard and Sigil 0.1.9
I attached the ePub file in question...

I too can open this file just fine on Win7 x64. Create a new issue on the tracker, attach the epub file and a link to this thread and I'll take a look at it the next time I'm near a Mac.

I can reproduce the problem on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard), Sigil 1.9.

However, it seems to be a problem with the zip file - unzipping and rezipping allows the book to be opened in Sigil.

Perhaps the zip contains file permissions that Sigil's unzip is honouring?

where the "?---------" is indicating file permissions of 000000 octal, which does mean "No Access".

That's exactly what I said in my comment on the issue on the tracker.

ZipArchive, the library Sigil uses for ZIP operations is good; perhaps too good. Where other ZIP tools fail to preserve the permissions of the files stored in the ZIP file, ZipArchive doesn't. I should take a look into making it "dumber".
