Possible for no WordPress version number to be shown in footer

Description

For whatever reason, get_option( 'update_core' )->response is currently set to NULL on one of my latest SVN installs. This is causing no version number to be displayed in the footer.

Attached is a screenshot as proof as well as a patch which makes core_update_footer() fall back to just displaying the install's version number if it doesn't know anything about the latest version.

Hmm - maybe #4796 wasn't as bogus as it sounded :-(

Fix looks sensible

(In [5987]) Ensure we always show the current version in the footer if the last update check failed. Fixes #4867 props Viper007Bond
