Yep, now i see:

pacman-contrib $ cat 4
warning: downgrading package pacman (3.4.0-1 => 3.3.3-5)
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...

Targets (1): pacman-3.3.3-5

Total Download Size:    0.00 MB
Total Installed Size:   2.09 MB

checking package integrity...
checking for file conflicts...
upgrading pacman...

However, this is no longer an issue after my patch and can confirm
that there's no $startdir/4.

$ printf %q\\n "pacman>4"
