Downgrading to menu-cache 0.3.3 and "sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/" is a workaround for today.

There's no such problem on i686 (inside Virtualbox)...

Could you post steps to reproduce this issue?

open pcmanfm, click "Applications", click any sub-category. After that the contents of the applications turn empty and the cursor turns to "busy". In journalctl I see the above segfault message.
P.S. I did fresh install on x86_64 with pacman -S pcmanfm gnome-menus. It segfaults. But in virtualbox, on i686, there is no segfault and everything works correctly...

Does menu-cache 0.5.0 fix your issue?
