It seems the patch is indeed in discussion. Of course for now some are
experiencing crashes, but the solution given by the patch is
discussable. Well at least that's what I understood. I think the
author is aware of that problem as the patch comes from is official
bugtracker and he affected himself to the issue.
I decided to apply the patch because if a developer can focus on what
is good for its software, I think a packager should focus on
usability. And from that point of view, a bad solution is temporarily
better than software crashes making it unusable.

And by the way, indeed, the answer was in the PKGBUILD man, I'm sorry
I always forget that PKGBUILD has a man page, I usually only check
wiki. I try to mark that in my head for next time ;)
