I think the problem has more to do with the fact that java jars, though in ZIP format they are, were created by the java's jar utility and, perhaps, have some subtle differences comparing to the "normal" ZIP format.

If you use the jar utility to create zip archive (with extension zip), Konqueror will have the same probles opening it as it has with jar files. Thanks
