The "typo" that wasn't a typo was in valuepair.c.  It's shitty CVS
that makes that part of the log message appear to go with rbtree.c.
See valuepair.c#1.108 for the correction of the "correction".

I removed the const because the compiler complains about Sentinel being
self-referential (.Left is not const but you are assigning it a const).

It seemed easier than casting each NIL to (rbnode_t *).

How would you write to the sentinel if it's const?  Or do you mean that
threads would write to it when they shouldn't.
