I just tried it with no problem on one of my projects with no problem.

ensure that you have no spaces in your project.requried.plugins property

If you have no spaces then I need to know what is happening look in the 
output of your forrest run for "Installing plugin: text-output" and copy 
what follows to an email
  (copy up to the next "configure:plugin" entry)

I'm off for a pint now - will address this tomorrow if you have not 
resolved it.
