Amarok and KMix crash on start-up [Solved]

KMix and Amarok both crash on start-up. I have no idea why they do. I checked what happens in vanilla user, and they still crash. So I ruled out settings.
This started today, which is strange, given the last update wasn't anything significant (at least for me).
This the log of last update:

[2013-09-28 01:47] [PACMAN] Running 'pacman -Syu'
[2013-09-28 01:47] [PACMAN] synchronizing package lists
[2013-09-28 01:47] [PACMAN] starting full system upgrade
[2013-09-28 01:47] [PACMAN] upgraded archlinux-keyring (20130818-1 -> 20130926-1)
[2013-09-28 01:48] [PACMAN] upgraded ca-certificates (20130610-1 -> 20130906-1)
[2013-09-28 01:48] [PACMAN] upgraded dialog (1.2_20130902-1 -> 1.2_20130923-1)
[2013-09-28 01:48] [PACMAN] upgraded file (5.14-1 -> 5.15-1)
[2013-09-28 01:48] [PACMAN] upgraded imagemagick (6.8.6.10-1 -> 6.8.7.0-1)
[2013-09-28 01:48] [PACMAN] upgraded links (2.7-2 -> 2.8-1)

Also Amarok and KMix are only media apps that are affected. VLC works, MPlayer works, even Flash (YouTube) works. If I test sound in System Settings sounds works as well.
The other application which also has problems at start-up is Dropbox, but I doubt it's connected. It says there's a permission error and the error report among other things says:
OperationalError: database or disk is full

So does that mean I have /tmp problem? It still has 3,2GB of space left (as always).
Did update of file or dialog somehow broke this??
Any help is welcome. At least give me some additional ideas, so I can post this on KDE forum. At least tell me if anyone else has the same problem.

Oh BTW: I thought it might be the problem with the new kernel. But I re-built it and check if the catalyst module got built, and it still doesn't work. So it's not driver problem either.

Re: Amarok and KMix crash on start-up [Solved]

Ironically I already solved it, but I don't know which of the two things I did solved it.
I first downgraded linux to previous version. To do that I had to go to /var/cache/pacman/pkg, where I noticed how much old packages I had, so I also did pacman -Sc.
I'm guessing this was what solved it, as dropbox also works. So I think I'll upgrade back and hopefully everything will still work.
If not well I'm kind of screwed, as pacman -Sc cleared all the older versions of linux. It was the problem with disk space and not with the kernel. So this is solved.

BTW: is there a version of pacman -Sc that doesn't remove the one version before the current? (That would be really useful)
