WinZip is brain dead

I went through the options and even checked the changes for the 9.0 beta, and as far as I can tell there's no way to change this behaviour. If you unzip a file, it *always* unzips it to a temporary directory then moves it to the final destination.

If you're unzipping, say, a 3 gigabyte file, and you have 4 gigabytes of free space, this means you can't unzip it even though you have enough room! What insanity is this?

Now, back to wrestling with perl and trying to get sendmail to send mail.
