#23845: Install new theme via FTP failed

 New theme installation via FTP has failed when we specified custom
 FTP_BASE folder.  If we try this theme installation , wordpress shows
 error message: "Unable to locate WordPress theme directory". This was
 because search_for_folder method do not respect FTP_BASE setting and
 allows to walking on parent directories.  All solutions I found in google
 is ugly hacks who only mask the problem but does not resolved it
 I attached patch  example who resolve this problem. I hope is useful and
 will help to repair this bug.
