Please report this kind of issues to pacman-dev ML or pacman
bugtracker in the future :)
This limitation was actually not even known to us (at least Nagy and

This issue might be fixable (at least that specific case), and it
might be a pactest that we want to add to the testsuite, to avoid
future regressions.
