I'm really confused by this email, so let me see if I understood this
properly. What you mean to say is as follows:

A "->next circle" is what? A circular list in the forward/next direction?
"removing the first node" meaning the first node in the list (head
node)? the first node found?

I'd like to fix this but I really have no idea what you mean - I'm not
trying to be an ass, I just don't get it.

To be clear, line 459 is what you mean? Is this what you intended to say:
   Setting the head node's ->prev point to NULL corrupts the passed in list

> 2. files = alpm_list_reverse(files) in your remove.c.diff is a memleak.

This one I understand. It has real code and a concise explanation of
the problem. Thanks
