[Cycle 8] "Unexpected libzip error: Inval" when building project that references Android Support Libraries if user name contains any accented characters

## Regression status: Regression in Cycle 8 Stable compared to Cycle 7 SR 1

> BAD:  Xamarin (c4382f5) (with Xamarin.Android (0e59c36))
> GOOD: Xamarin  (fcbe082) (with Xamarin.Android (1cf254d))

## Steps followed to replicate

1. Create a Windows username that includes a non-ASCII character.  (I used a single letter username "é" for my tests.)

2. Create a new "Visual C# > Android > Blank App (Android)" project.  (I created the project under the path `C:\source` for my tests.)

3. Add the "Xamarin.Android.Support.v4" (version NuGet package.

4. Attempt to build the project.

## BAD Results on Cycle 8

The key error is:

> error XA5209: Reason: Unexpected libzip error: Inval

## GOOD Results on Cycle 7 SR 1

The build completes successfully (and so does packaging and signing into a .apk).

## Bookkeeping

It looks like this commit ended up being included in C8SR0 due to the update for LibZipSharp that was included for Bug 44184.  So this can optionally be verified against C8SR0 rather than C8SR1.  Thanks!

I can also reproduce this Issue with Cycle8  build (XVS This is the build output for the same: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/ba0ba6b61d5add43ac20908c57ecb020

I have also checked it with latest C8SR0 build and it is working fine. This is the build output: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/94585820835e95793f246c8a8288d145
