Thanks, Yeah, that's basically what I was trying, but it turns out that 
the problem I was having was the unzip function.

I did what you said (didn't work here, but worked fine on another 
version) and then I tried unzipping locally and uploaded (still didn't 
work). A new function was added that borked the update on my particular 
server/php version. So it's not the script that's broken, just the very 
early software ;-) I have faith that it'll be straightened out by 
release. http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12230

By the way, I was using php exec() to do command lines, as I run in a 
cloud environment (I'd have to get on LiveChat and have someone do the 
command line I believe, and I'm trying to avoid doing that to often). I  
don't know how to use svn, but I guess I'll have to suffer thru some 
more "new learning"
