Zip file creation error

Hello,

I'm running winXPpro SP02 and having a serious problem. It just
started recently. When I use Infozip from the command line I get an
error as follows:

d:\tmp0>zip test.zip *.lis
adding: ascii.lis (188 bytes security) (deflated 57%)
adding: storage.lis (188 bytes security) (deflated 59%)
adding: Words.lis (188 bytes security) (deflated 57%)

zip warning: new zip file left as: zia01000
zip I/O error: File exists
zip error: Could not create output file (was replacing the
original zip file)

When I explicitly include the path

d:\tmp0>zip \tmp0\test.zip *.lis
adding: ascii.lis (188 bytes security) (deflated 57%)
adding: storage.lis (188 bytes security) (deflated 59%)
adding: Words.lis (188 bytes security) (deflated 57%)

d:\tmp0>

I don't get the error. It did not used to behave that way. I used
to be able to use it without explicitly specifying the path, and
on my wife's machine (also winXPpro SP2) that is still how it works.

I get the same problem with the command line version of WinZip
Something on my machine has recently changed and I don't know what.
Does anyone have any ideas?
