Huawei E173 USB modem is not detected after usb_modeswitch update. When I downgrade the package to usb_modeswitch-2.2.3-1, it works again. Maybe the bug from upstream?

Additional info:
* usb_modeswitch-2.2.4-1
* dmesg error when modem is inserted:
usb_modeswitch[732]: segfault at 4 ip 0000000000404b87 sp 00007fffe1b36208 error 4 in usb_modeswitch[400000+c000]

Steps to reproduce:
pacman -Syu to update usb_modeswitch to the latest version.
This task depends upon

2.2.5 was just uploaded, does it still segfault?
