Cannot Install on Chrome Dev Channel #5

When trying to install via the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search-extensions/RailsPanel), I receive the following error:
Download was not a CRX

I have tried to manually install that downloaded CRX file by dropping it onto the Chrome Extensions page but get the same error there as well (just tried it to double-check).

Would love to use RailsPanel but was not sure if this was an issue with my dev version of Chrome (Version 25.0.1364.5 dev).

I'm seeing the same thing with the Chrome dev version (regular production Chrome installs fine).

I am also having issue with Chrome 23.0.1271.6 dev.

For what it's worth, I went through the comments noted in Issue 6 (#6) and was able to get it installed on my Dev build of Chrome.

Maybe this is related: #6 (comment)

it seems to be a bug in the Web Store. If you've previously signed in, but are not currently signed in, the downloaded CRX file is actually a copy of the Google login page (the "confirm your password for this account" one) instead of the extension.

If you sign in to the Web Store before downloading everything will work.
