Fun story...

[2015-10-12 09:47] [ALPM] upgraded glibc (2.22-3 -> 2.22-4)
[2015-10-12 09:47] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] bash: loadlocale.c:130:
_nl_intern_locale_data: Assertion `cnt < (sizeof
(_nl_value_type_LC_COLLATE) / sizeof (_nl_value_type_LC_COLLATE[0]))'

And that was given every time I tried running anything.  It is fun to
watch your system slowly die while trying to figure a way to remove that
update from the repos!

The only changes between our 2.22-3 and 2.22-4 builds were these patches
you committed.  It seems they introduce incompatibilities to locale
files generated with builds from earlier in the 2.22 release branch?  I
was using a relatively benign locale (en_AU.UTF8).
