Comment (by dougal):

 I'm currently getting this (in r7331):

 Fatal error: Call to a member function exists() on a non-object in [...my
 path...]/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ftpsockets.php on line 110

 Declaring the $wp_filesystem variable as a global in the find_base_dir()
 method seems to fix that error. But:
 1) The update seems to be slow as molasses on my system, and
 2) I'm still getting zero-byte files during the unzip stage.

 Are the built-in zip functions being used, when available? My system is
 PHP 5.2.1 with the ZIP extension installed.

 And I still think this either needs to use AJAX, or we should put some
 flush() calls at various key points of the upgrade. There needs to be some
 sort of user feedback for slow updates, or users are going to be punching
 the "stop" button in their browsers, thinking that something has stalled.
