I suspect it's actually the reverse. Module::Install behaves badly when
you have one version of Module::Install installed (as an author) and a
different release located in ./inc/.
A quick test would be to make sure that Module::Install is up-to-date
and then nuke the ./inc directory (which, in my opinion, shouldn't be in
the repository at all) and let it recreate. You can still package inc/
when you build a release, but it is probably a bad idea to have that in
the repository. It isn't too much of a hassle for people trying to run
out of the repository to have M::I installed...
