Well, I looked into _alpm_pkg_load, and as I see, it uses .FILELIST if
that is provided in the archive, and auto-generates it if it is missing.
The bug is in the testsuite, and since I am not familiar in python, I
cannot provide a patch for fixing this.

Steps to reproduce: run pactest on fileconflict002.py, and check the
generated package file in pactest/root/tmp.
