Re: bug/deficiency in zip: non-ascii chars in file names work, but fail in directory names

You need to add the -r option to recurse into directories:

$ zip -r ÃÃÃÃÃ
  adding: ÃÃÃÃÃ/ (stored 0%)
  adding: ÃÃÃÃÃ/ãäéïï.txt (stored 0%)

$ mkdir tmp2 ; cd tmp2 ; unzip -l ../
Archive:  ../

So, it appears to me that zip/unzip do not fail when you use the -r option.
