 I'm using 2.7-beta2 and trying to use the new backend plugin installer
 functions, and discovered a bug: If I have an empty folder with the name
 of the plugin I want to install, I get the message "Latest Version
 Installed" instead of the install link.

 I got to this point due to installation problems with the error "Could not
 create directory", so I though I could just create the directory on my own
 - but then, no install link =(.

 Its reproducible and applies to all plugins.

 (Second, didn't manage to install new plugins over the admin interface at
 all, although upgrading already installed plugins works flawless. Have
 tested it with file permissions 755 and 777)
