I took a glance, and I see nothing wrong there. Pacman doesn't do
anything fancy besides extracting the DB files.
Seems like an odd edge case, possibly user error.

I say forget about it, it's resolved. If we get another report, we can
look into it more, unless, Dan, you think this is a potential pacman
issue, but I don't see how it could break on DB extraction
