Definitely nothing even close to that.

I do note that, as I mentioned, /var/run and /var/lock were symlinks, which I
think is a change from about six months ago.

I'm about to try the suggested sequence:

> pacman -Syu --ignore filesystem --ignore glibc
> pacman -S --force filesystem --ignore glibc
> pacman -Sd <everything you couldn't upgrade due to ignored glibc>
> pacman -Su

and we'll see what happens.
