For cracking WinZIP, you should use a snapshot of bleeding-jumbo 
instead. Since July, the false positives are (afaik) gone for good. You 
need to re-run [latest version of] zip2john as well.

But what you describe is still a bug for (other) formats that may find 
false/alternative passwords: --show only shows the last cracked 
alternative. We have an open issue for that on GitHub. It's currently 
marked as "enhancement", maybe we should upgrade it to a "bug"...
