The marketplace for Google Play says there are zero installs, when clearly we've had some.

Is some issue with our installer the reason this is happening? Is this normal?

I think it's normal -- I remember reading about a talk one of the YouTube? guys gave on how they managed to scale their system so well, and one of their tricks was to not always sync state between all servers worldwide, but rather lie about the number of views a video gets, as long as the numbers are synchronized eventually, and don't appear completely off.

For comparison, the dullest app I found in the Software & Demos category on Google Play (other than ours, that is :-) that had "1-5" downloads over the last 30 days, so it might take a while for the download system to take note of all of our .us/.ca/.eu downloads.

Woo-hoo! "5-10 installs" for us, too! Seems like it took them a day to propagate download statistics throughout the system...
