You will see the below error message when you try to install new extension if you set mbstring.func_overload to 7

"Unrecoverable error "PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10)"

Are you certain that is from the function overloading?  I was having this issue as i was working through a few bugs with the FTP layer implementation. 

Might want to check with the latest version from the source tree if you haven't already :)  I'm not sure how up-to-date the tree is with my work right now.

All that being said, it COULD be the mbstring thing :)

Yeap, I am 100% sure because if you set mbstring.func_overload = 0 the problem will solve.

This raises a question whether pclzip supports utf-8.

In the meantime set mbstring.func_overide to 0.
This has some negative side effects on data integrity but as we are only testing - go ahead

Considering a fix for the pcl library

there is the workareound for it, if you dont want to set mbstring back to 0 you will have to install components, mambots etc tared  not ziped  as a fact every value besides mbstring.func_overload = 0 breaks pclzip most likely it does not support utf8 (so what I do is unzip component, then tar it and then install regulary with installer), pcltar works fine with mbstring.func_overload = 7,
