[SOLVED] libreoffice update "failed to read path from javaldx"

I don't have java installed as I do not use it (aside from whatever is built into chromium I guess). Libreoffice started up fine before the update. I had the option checked to not use java in the gui. Now it won't load at all. Is java-runtime now a hard dependency of libreoffice-common package? Is there any way to disable it? My ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/config/javasettings_Linux_X86_64.xml looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!--This is a generated file. Do not alter this file!-->
<java xmlns="http://openoffice.org/2004/java/framework/1.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<enabled xsi:nil="false">false</enabled>
<userClassPath xsi:nil="true"/>
<vmParameters xsi:nil="true"/>
<jreLocations xsi:nil="true"/>
<javaInfo xsi:nil="true"/>
I am looking into other files included with "pacman -Ql libreoffice-common" but can't seem to figure it out yet.
Edit: Also I have tried "# chown -vR dodo3773:users ~/.config" per the LibreOffice wiki entry. No pacnew files or anything in /etc either.

I'll wait a little bit for the mirrors to all sync up and try again. Marking as solved since it is a known issue with fix on the way. Thank you.
