All <zip>/<jar>/<ear>/<war> tasks using <zipfileset> are affected.
Please not that the <webinf>/<lib>/<metainf> elements as well as the
webxml and applicationxml attributes use a <zipfileset> internally, so
they have problems as well.

The effect is that the files coming from these filesets get their
"external attributes" set in a way that seems to make them unreadable
and unextractable by WinZIP.

While Antoine's patch certainly fixes *a* bug in Zip, I'm not sure
whether it really fixes *the* bug - no WinZIP to either verify the bug
in 1.5.2 or its fix in CVS.
