Just a small notice that this also became problematic today with the 
upgrade of nss, which was just upgraded from 3.12rc4 to 3.12.
So it goes fine with pacman 3.1, but not with pacman git. And even when 
I try to upgrade nss with pacman -S nss, this fails because xulrunner 
has the following depends : nss>=3.12rc4
