 this is expected behaviour, how would I go about removing a capability
 from a user (since remove_cap doesn't seem to be working in this case)?

 Not sure about the `remove_cap()` bug you've encountered, but
 `'map_meta_cap'` filter works for me:
 function wp31183_remove_install_plugins_capability( $caps, $cap, $user_id,
 $args ) {
         if ( 'install_plugins' === $cap ) {
                 $caps[] = 'do_not_allow';

         return $caps;
 add_filter( 'map_meta_cap', 'wp31183_remove_install_plugins_capability',
 10, 4 );

 I've tested [attachment:31183.diff], and it fixes the issue. Would like a
 second look from another committer.
