wine cannot install some msi files (aur/mingw-w64-python27-bin) since the glibc update

Reverting to glibc 2.30 make it work again:

sudo pacman -U

Maybe wine (5.1) was not recompiled properly or something ?

This task depends upon

this seems to be resolved now with the latest updates, maybe the mirrors were not completely in sync

no, something is still up with wine: I've got crashes of the wine server when I build aur/mingw-w64-paraview

It spawns a lot of wine processes

downgrading to glibc 2.30 make the problem go away

I didn't find relevant glibc commit or bug, the wine bug was closed as "not our bug". I am not sure if there's a fix on glibc side already and I missed it.
