pacman Mime types hook gives errors "Error in <match> element:

pacman -Syu last night resulting in mine type errors when the mime types hook ran, e,g,

( 4/10) Updating the MIME type database...
Error in type 'application/x-core' (in /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml): Error in <match> element: Mask is longer than value.
Error in type 'image/jp2' (in /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml): Error in <match> element: Mask is longer than value.
Error in type 'image/jpx' (in /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml): Error in <match> element: Mask is longer than value.
Error in type 'image/jpm' (in /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml): Error in <match> element: Mask is longer than value.
Error in type 'video/mj2' (in /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml): Error in <match> element: Mask is longer than value.
Error in type 'image/vnd.adobe.photoshop' (in /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml): Error in <match> element: Mask is longer than value.

I have no idea what caused it, but apparently, Arch isn't the only distro seeing it, so it may be upstream related, e.g. https://forum.endeavouros.com/t/getttin … paru/48015

I updated a second box, and the mime types hook ran without any error. I diffed the /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml) files between the boxes and they are the same, so what could have caused the error on one box and not the other?
