I've summarized my tests & conclusions on this subject in 4 points:
1) SVN directory name,
2) plugin installation direction,
3) plugin name in readme.txt, and
4) plugin name in PHP file
must all be "consistent" if not equal. Longer story :

Would love some head honcho or core coder to review this, though, just
to be sure if I'm not publicly making a fool of myself :)
