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...
