This must be a fluke due to something I can't explain on this one box. I have 
now upgraded 4 more boxes and I can't reproduce it. Strange. I've got a few more 
boxes to go, so I'll let you know if I see this again. The big issue on this one 
box is the PKGBUILD depends=('xorg') reinstalling everything. I'll follow up on 
that in the other thread. It may just be something with this one box as well.
