This is an indication of a corrupted .zip file.  ZIP files can be read
either sequentially or via the table of contents at the end of the file;
the LOC header is only used when access is via the TOC.  The classes use the TOC, while many other mechanisms use
sequential access and do not encounter the invalid LOC header.

One way this corruption can be introduced is by doing an FTP of the file
in ASCII mode using a Windows FTP client; this has the annoying habit of
converting LF characters into CR/LF sequences (or vice versa), which is
not something you want to do with a ZIP file.  You should be able to get
rid of the error by rebuilding the file.
