Thanks for the link to the bug.
Just after I posted the problem, I tried reverting to the earlier pacman package "pacman-3.3.0-3-i686.pkg.tar.gz" , which works with no problems. Then upgraded to pacman-3.3.1-1, where the problem returned.
Currently I'm running the earlier version, and have temporarily added pacman to the IgnorePkg list.
Thanks for your quick reply.
That is bad news. The bug I fixed should exist since pacman 3.3.0 (since we moved to libfetch). It is quite strange that you cannot reproduce the problem with that.
Any chances you could try the patch I posted in the bug report ?
You will have to get pacman 3.3.1 PKGBUILD though abs, and edit the PKGBUILD to apply that patch.
I'll have a go at that tomorrow, as I'm currently downloading ocaml for the second time (on dialup), and don't want to mess with pacman until that's installed.
