    This is a problem with your Anti-Virus Toolkit. It thinks
    the file does harm because the small packed file expands to
    a huge (really huge) file when unpacked.

    Obviously there is no harm; this is exactly what you what.
    If you don't believe, look with a hexeditor in the unpacked
    file. It only contains zeros.

    Several anti-virus toolkits/scanners have detected this file as an Archive bomb.

    It can be assumed that archive bombing was a serious problem at one point in time. It might be best to have PearPC create the image on location.
