Firstly I wanted to say that I'm just a student and that it is the first patch I make so thank you for the support.

Secondly about the -Qy problem I thought of that afterwards, maybe -Qk standing for the last letter of "check" would be better. That is an easy change to make.

Finally, my main concern about this patch is that it works great when querying the entire database (i.e. "pacman -Qy") but I get a segmentation fault when querying some given packages (i.e. "pacman -Qy glibc pacman"). As I'm not an expert in C I was hoping that if somebody had some time he could help me fix this.
