After some time since boot the process /usr/sbin/pacrunner consumes houndreds megabytes of memory/swap.

This is a known issue of the currently used pacrunner 0.8 which is fixed in version 0.9 according to the git commit log of the project.

It would be highly appreciated if the updated pacrunner version was included in upcoming release.

From the git commit log:

Follows: 0.8
Precedes: 0.9

client: Detach threads since they are never joined

Unless the threads are created as detached (or joined, which is not the
case here), not all resources will be released when the thread exits.
If not handled, this causes unlimited memory usage over time.
