Yup, Those with suPHP installed wont have to use FTP in the end. Right now FTP is forced to make people test it more :P

I found the dreamhost issue, Its not a dreamhost issue specifically, Rather that the code assumed the FTP session would allow access to /home/user/, Some ftp setups, such as Dreamhost, have the ftp session jailed into /home/user, So /home/user/ appears as / ('eh.. Its getting late, sorry if thats not making sense?)

Thrown a patch into the Updater ticket. http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5586
