there is a bug in older versions of z cerain dll use4d by windows for "compressed(zipped) folders" in XP. I don't trust it. it corrupts and drops data according to my testing. the problem you had doesn't surprise me. it also doesn't handle files/archives over 2GiB. use 7-zip command-line:
cd somedir
7z a ..\something.zip 
cd somedir
7z a something.zip abc\*

it has some bugs with regards to recursive directories (always on regardless of -r switch)

the issue with compressed(zipped) folders seems to have been fixed in windows 7 AND the 2GiB limit is fixed.
