Bug #20319 "No releases available for package" when temp dir not writable

Description: ------------ When the temporary directory is not writable, the pear installer gives a message "no releases available for package ..." instead of telling me that it cannot write temporary files. This happens when PEAR is normally run as root, and root owns /tmp/pear/, and then running PEAR as a normal user.

I am not sure that this error only happens when temp dir is not writable: I sometimes see it on Windows and it is fixed by "pear clear-cache" command. What can cause it in this case: broken / incomplete cache entries written?

That could be a cause. We'd have to debug this when this problem occurs.

Fixed in git stable branch. Will be in 1.10.0dev2 (or 1.10.0).
