Thanks for the bug report, It's possible that zip provider has been 
tested with other providers. Is your provider interposing on the 
system-default or is a distinct provider? I'm curious how you ran into this.

You might know this already but zip provider ships as a demo provider 
(source code is the demo directory) so it might be easy for you to test 
your patch and also see if there are any other issues. I think it would 
be useful to know if there are any other issues.
