Weird characters in installer folder structure when viewing in 7zip?

Hi all,

We are trying to update NSIS to the latest 3.03 in order to take advantage of the Unicode support. We were using 2.46 prior to this.

I am noticing differences in the installers generated by 2.46 and 3.03. I am using the simple tutorial found here:

http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Simple_tutorials

in particular the one titled "Simply install a file". Inspecting the output from 2.46 using 7Zip, the test.txt exists at the root level, whereas in the installer generated by 3.03, the test.txt is located in a folder named "•€". Executing both installers seem to produce the same result just wondering if this weirdly named folder is something I should be concerned about? Is this part of some change to support Unicode?

7-zip does not fully support Unicode NSIS, the weird folder names is their bug.
