Overlay package gets installed in wrong location #107

After updating Visual Studio 2013 to Update 4 several problems started appearing with one specific package (OpenCV 2.4.10) that uses Overlays:

For some project I have this line in my packages.config in the project root:

<package id="OpenCV" version="2.4.10" targetFramework="Native" />

Doing nuget.exe restore correctly installs the package to $(SolutionDir)packages\. Upon building of the project it seems that nuget tries to install an overlay packge which succeeds but it gets installed in the wrong location thus .lib and .dll files cannot be found when linking. The error message is:

warning : Overlay Package 'OpenCV.overlay-x64_v120_Debug v2.4.10' installed correctly, but the nupkg file 'C:\project\packages\OpenCV.2.4.10\OpenCV.overlay-x64_v120_Debug.2.4.10' is not in the expected location.

It really isn't there, its at the top-level package source location or sometimes at the project root.
How do I fix this?

A workaround is to prevent the creation of overlays altogether as explained in #54 .
