 I just noticed that the plugins update check was being run on every
 request to the plugins page, Because the list of plugins that were being
 sent to the API server was never fully complete, if a plugin was detected
 that had changed in position 5 (of say 30 plugins), only the first 5
 plugins were being checked for an update. (Thats the changes to the
 location of the break in the loops, Might be an idea to apply that to the
 2.7 branch as well?)

 In adition, I've streamlined a bit more of the code, It now checks every
 hour if the user visits the admin page for themes or plugins, or updates
 every 12 hours otherwise. This wont be a problem for most situations, And
 helps users who are visiting the plugins page since they know theres an
 update thats just been released.

 The patch also removes header fields which are taken care of by the HTTP
 API, as well as using the specific _post() or _get() functions instead of
 the generic _request() (Which defaults to _get())

 Finally, The themes update check is run on the themes & update page loads
 to bring it into line with the plugins update check.
