Your approach works well for other archive formats. For example it works when I
strip a prefix from members of an unshield archive. But here we are speaking of
an archive unpacked with "unar" and if I read the source code of g-d-p
correctly, then maybe the problem is, that g-d-p tries to specifically only
extract the requested files instead of extracting everything and then picking
the files that have a matching case-insensitive suffix? This would explain the
errors I see. For unshield this doesn't happen because it doesn't allow
extracting individual files, thus has to extract everything first and then
g-d-p can do the suffix matching.

Just a hunch.


cheers, josch
