Teamviewer GUI does not start on Arch Linux with lib32-freetype2-2.8.1

After a recent upgrade in my Arch Linux system, I was not able to start the Teamviewer GUI. The problem is that Teamviewer is not able to start if using version 2.8.1-1 of lib32-freetype2 library. In order to get it working, I had to downgrade to version 2.8-2:

# pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lib32-freetype2-2.8-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

After that, Teamviewer GUI starts normally. In order to avoid lib32-freetype2 to be updated, add it to Pacman package ignore list:

    IgnorePkg   = lib32-freetype2
