When creating a zip folder with c#'s ZipFile.CreateFromDirectory(path, zipPath, CompressionLevel.Optimal, true); we get a zip which contains a folder.

If this zip is extracted with php55 ($zip->extractTo('/my/destination/dir/');), we have the extracted folder in the location we defined.

But when the zip is extracted with php70 with exactly the same call as above we dont get the folder in the defined extractTo path, but the contents in the folder.

So in php77 the folder which is in the zip is skipped and the contents in the folder is extracted.

The strange thing is that this only happens when using the c# call. So i'm not sure if it's a php thing or c# thing. When i create a zip with a folder in the trough 7zip, php70 behaves exactly as expected (which is what php55 does).
