No, that's because `unzip' expands wildcards in its command-line
arguments.  Since `call-process' doesn't go through the shell, the
arguments generally don't need to be quoted (except with `unzip',

I suggest that you file a bug report, because the fix is not trivial,
if we want to keep the code in arc-mode.el independent of the
customizable settings of the archive-*-extract etc. options.
