  1. Install WordPress but don't run through the installation pages at
  2. Run the upgrade process at
  3. Database tables have been created, preventing the install process from running, the user table is empty.

Attached patch won't allow an upgrade if get_option('db_version') is undefined. I am of course, presuming that this is a useful way of detecting an empty database.
