I'd appreciate you running it with my new debug output, that should be helpful.
How about the following (if you want to just send it to me and not
clog the list with attachments, that is fine):
1. (CVS version) pacman3 -Su --debug > output.txt
2. (CVS version) pacman3 -Su --debug=3 > output3.txt
3. The filelists from the old bery packages with significance
(whichever packages had the files that changed hands,
beryl-plugins-svn and beryl-plugins-unsupported-svn)

I am going to be a bit busy early this week with schoolwork, but
hopefully this will get resolved in the near future.
