  Well, it aint #1 or #3.  What's curious is:

c:  hd  NTFS    105175Mb  56% CP CS UN PA FC     
d:  cd             N/A    N/A                    
e:  hd  NTFS     93040Mb  74% CP CS UN PA FC     Files
f:  fd             N/A    N/A                    
g:  fd             N/A    N/A                    
h:  fd             N/A    N/A                    
i:  fd             N/A    N/A                    
j:  cd             N/A    N/A

  And, exactly *which* directory are you trying to unpack in?  And what does
"getfacl -a -d <dirname>" show you for that dir?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
