I downloaded the source for VLC, then I had to install some deps to be able to compile it.
After restart, today I've deleted the package I made, cleaned the pacman cache and reinstalled
VLC from official repo.
Then I got segfault when trying to run vlc or the vlc-gen-cache.
I've checked with dmesg and the segfault was in libc 2.19.

Additional info:
deps installed:
[2014-04-17 02:34] [PACMAN] Running 'pacman -S xosd projectm libmtp libdvdcss'
[2014-04-17 02:34] [PACMAN] installed xosd (2.2.14-7)
[2014-04-17 02:34] [PACMAN] installed ftgl (2.1.3rc5-5)
[2014-04-17 02:34] [PACMAN] installed projectm (2.1.0-8)
[2014-04-17 02:34] [PACMAN] installed libmtp (1.1.6-6)
[2014-04-17 02:34] [PACMAN] installed libdvdcss (1.2.13-3)
[2014-04-17 02:35] [PACMAN] Running 'pacman -S gnome-vfs libgoom2 vcdimager'
[2014-04-17 02:35] [PACMAN] installed gnome-vfs (2.24.4-8)
[2014-04-17 02:35] [PACMAN] installed libgoom2 (2k4-2)
[2014-04-17 02:35] [PACMAN] installed vcdimager (0.7.24-5)

Steps to reproduce:
Install VLC.
Install deps for building VLC.
vlc and vlc-gen-cache crash with segfault.
Remove deps and it works.

Should be fixed with glib2 from testing.
