Bug#460619: stalls (or hangs if called externally) opening encrypted '.zip' file.

Package: ark
Version: 4:4.2.4-1
Severity: normal

I'd say the bug remains, more or less.  It's a bit different
this time, but still fails.  Details:

        # encrypt text file 'foo' in 'bar.zip', pw=melon
        % B=/tmp/bar.zip ; F=/tmp/foo ; echo hello > $F ; zip -P melon $B $F
          adding: tmp/foo (stored 0%)
        % ark $B

'ark' shows the archive contents list; hilite 'foo', click 'Preview', and:

    Sorry - Ark
    /!\  The internal viewer cannot preview this file.

...it can't view it.  'ark' doesn't prompt for a password.

>From 'ark', click 'Extract', and 'ark' asks for a location to extract
'foo'.  Does not ask for a password.  Press OK, 'ark' creates a
directory with 'foo' in it, seemingly extracted?  No, the file is just
garbage characters, probably still encrypted.  See attached 'foo'.

Summing up, it doesn't hang or stall anymore, but it fails, and
neglects to warn the user it fails.  This bug shouldn't be closed, but
might profitably be renamed to something like: "'Extract' encrypted
'.zip' file outputs garbage."
