i would say if the problem is with the patch that improves conflict.c,
then why not fixing conflict.c and adding a workaround to sync.c if

the sync.c patch contains two hunk: a workaround for the conflict.c
problem and a compile fix (would it be a big problem not to mix compile
fixes and workarounds?) if you revert the workaround, and apply this


i hope the test will pass again (this time without the workaround)

something partially unrelated: would it be difficult to add an option to
pactest to run "fakeroot libtool gdb --args" instead of "fakeroot" and
in that case not to redirect the output? for now i've hardwired that
here, but that's not a sollution :)
