Summary and Info:
I tried to install sublime text on my machine, and forgot to install the PGP key. After running `doas pacman -Sy sublime-text`, I got this output:
:: Synchronizing package databases...
core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
sublime-text 1831.0 B 2.13 KiB/s 00:01 [######################] 100%
error: sublime-text: key "F57D4F59BD3DF454" is unknown
:: Import PGP key F57D4F59BD3DF454? [Y/n]
free(): invalid pointer
Aborted (core dumped)

After installing the PGP key though, it all went fine.

Steps to Reproduce:
Install Sublime Text 4 from the Dev channel:
1. DO NOT install the PGP key
2. Add the sublime text Dev repository: `echo -e "\n[sublime-text]\nServer ="; | doas tee -a /etc/pacman.conf`
3. Update and install sublime text: `doas pacman -Syu sublime-text`
(replace doas with sudo if necessary)
This task depends upon
