Anyone able to reproduce this?

Are you sure it froze? After downloading packages, pacman can take a long time (10 minutes, even) to check package integrity and file conflicts. Because of the installation dialog's textbox only receives output lines when they're terminated with a newline, it doesn't see the "checking conflicts..." message until the check is complete, making it appear as though the system has locked up.
