VMWare crashes in Arch Linux (after curl update)

After upgrading Arch Linux VMWare Workstation suddenly started crashing.  At first I thought it was related to this reported issue in the Arch Bug Tracker.  But it turns out it was not the case.

The solution for this particular crash was simply to downgrade curl from curl-7.32.0-1 to curl-7.32.0-1.

pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/curl-7.31.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz 

You can see the bug report in Arch Linux

Hopefully this helps someone out there.  This solution came from Alex Mufatti at his blog but for Debian.
