The manual install worked.
inserted a row into the plugin table.
Messing with the database shouldn't have been necessary. If the install via upload doesn't work then doing the manual install, i.e. unpack locally, upload to specific directories, should let you run the install from the Admin's plugin page.
And please do submit a bug report for the original issue. I had a quick glimpse at the code and I think I have an idea what the problem might be. But I'm out of town right now and may forget about it before I'm home ...
