[vox-tech] unzip producing output that is garbage


downloaded some data from the seamless.usgs.gov website, only to find that the 
ZIP archives that it delivered expanded to garbage! 

running `file` on all of the contents returned "data", when other types should 
have been recognized. Also, a tiff file that was included in the archive is 
not being recognized as a tiff in any program. Text files have extra garbage 
near the top of the files. 

Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

I have tried `unzip -b`  as well, trying to force the un-archiving of the tiff 
file as binary, but without luck.

Any thoughts/ ideas?
