Console output of '/usr/lib/PackageKit/packagekitd --verbose'
When I'm trying to remove a package with gpk-application, packagekitd crashes, and the transaction fails.
Distribution: Arch Linux (ALPM backend used)
- packagekit 1.0.0
- gnome-packagekit 3.14.0

I attached the console output of the packagekitd command.
?? isn't super useful. Can you install/compile-with debug symbols please?
Sorry, here is a more detailed backtrace:

Thanks for the new backtrace; can you try git master please:

alpm: Fix a few potential double-frees
Thank you very much! It fixes the crash, but after the transaction, gpk-application remains in an inconsistent state. I could see that the transaction finished, but the package list is not updated as expected, the removed package left marked for removal, and the checkboxes before packages are invisible. I have to close gpk-application and open it again to become usable again. It doesn't happen after package installation, just after package removal.
We moved the upstream bugtracker to GitHub a long time ago. If this issue still affects you please re-create the issue here: https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/issues
Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
