Ah well, I answered Dan privately because I found this confusing, but I 
should have answered here probably :)
When .FILELIST files are absent, pacman rebuilds the filelist by reading 
the tarball. There is a problem with 3.0 though, it didn't ignore 
.CHANGELOG while rebuilding that filelist. So this problem is only 
triggered when using pacman 3.0, with new packages that don't have 
.FILELIST anymore, and have a changelog.
This issue has been fixed ages ago in 3.1, and there is a new iso with 
3.1 in preparation, so there is nothing to do but wait.
