Cats shouldn't be in bags, anyways.

The crasher has an OS/2 extra field that claims to have a compressed
block size of 52735 bytes and an uncompressed block size of 127 bytes.

The attached patch against UnZip 6.0 ensures, within extra fields, 
size(compressed) <= size(uncompressed) and should fix this issue.

Subject: Info-ZIP UnZip buffer overflow

By carefully crafting a corrupt ZIP archive with extra fields that
purport to have compressed blocks larger than the corresponding
uncompressed blocks, an attacker can trigger a heap overflow which can
result in application crash or possibly have unspecified other impact.

This patch ensures extra fields can't claim to contain a block with a 
a compressed size larger than its uncompressed size.
