[SOLVED] yaourt and "wrong hashes"

I've just had some troubles updating several packages from AUR with yaourt.
The issues where concentrating on seemingly "wrong hashes".

Today I looked a little deeper and found out, that for some reason (maybe canceled upgrade or similar) yaourt was placing a symlink in the

/tmp/yaourt-tmp-user/package-name/

that refers to a (possibly) broken file in

/var/cache/yaourt/build/

Yaourt seems not to be able to delete it, so when trying to update (again) it will break operation on validating hashes.

Not sure if that's just a system quirk introduced by a crash or a yaourt specific problem (as it's unable to delete the broken file from its build directory on its own).

Anyhow: For me deleting the contents of the yaourt's build directory and the package build directories in /tmp solved this issue and I was able to update without any troubles!
Happy times! Though I think it's sufficient to only delete the files specific to the package that fails to upgrade.

Hope this could be of any use to someone.

Can you add a Troubleshooting section to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Yaourt ?
