Exporting files with non-ASCII characters results in malformed characters/mojibake

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a file with non-ASCII characters in the filename and place it in the sdcard directory. For instance: 文字化け.txt
2. Export the file via AirDroid.
3. Extract the contents of the archive file.

Result: Filenames are scrambled.

Tested on Ubuntu 10.10 with Fileroller.
