I can confirm it. Downgrading fixes it.

And here's a patched PKGBUILD for release 2.12.10-1p. Create package as usual with makepkg from within the extracted directory, until the maintainer releases an official fixed version. Works for me. Note that the official package is considered newer than this one on purpose.
