fzf 0.17.5-1.0 not working in pacui, fzf-git 20171027-1 works

Hello,
after this update

my package management helper pacui https://github.com/excalibur1234/pacui stopped working. When it is supposed to show a list of packages to install or to remove it just hangs.

I built fzf-git 20171027-1, installed it removing fzf 0.17.5-1.0 and then pacui started to work again.

Any package which relies on fuzzy search like fzf might have similar issues, so anybody with similar issues can try my workaround.

I think fzf needs a rebuild again.
Because when I replace my fzf-git with fzf from the repo I get this slowness in pacui. I could test with any other program that uses fzf if you can suggest me one.
I would really appreciate a rebuild, because if pacui won't work after a rebuild then there must be another error which I'd like to help to find.

Hi, I pushed fzf 0.18.0-2.0 to stable. Hope that one works...

Thanks, Andreas! But it was 0.18.0-2.0 which was giving me the issue. I'm using the testing arch32 repo.
I've just installed 0.18.0-2.1 and the issue persists. FYI, here is the output: https://hastebin.com/etijakejes.coffeescript
I will contact the developer of pacui, thanks for the testing opportunity on his behalf from me!

"runtime: out of memory:" looks like "modern" development to me: now faster because we load everything
into a 64 GB memory cache... :-)

fzf 0.18.0-2.0 would have hit stable anyway soon, as in Archlinux no package depends on it.

(I opened a topic at manjaro32.)

I suspect there is something different in the build process between fzf and fzf-git. It's unlikely some feature of the newer git version, because the difference was already there a year ago.

@andreas_baumann, @deep42thought! Can you have a look at the topic on Manjaro forum!

If you find time, please, take a closer look at the difference in PKGBUILD between fzf and fzf-git. There are differences, but it is difficult to say which are significant that fzf causes an error and fzf-git not. Maybe for the purpose of a test you can build fzf-git on the build server to see if it doesn't cause the error.
