I install the last version of HMWP on a fresh WP 3.6.1 install, everything works fine.
But while I was testing the hiding, I notice that the only plugins directory accessible is the one of HMWP. I can navigate with a browser wihtin the whole directory.
HMWP isn’t hiding itself ?
I have read the Quick Fix Guide and the FAQ and didn’t find a clue.

and it seems, I’m not the only one look here

Therefore, if you experience problem it’s better to use this one:
Yes, I’m going to add it (the second rule) to future version. You can hide any other folder with same method.
Right, it causes troubles to ‘WP Maintenance Mode’
