As Phil and I discussed off-line, the above fix is just
a workaround. The problem seems to come from using Sun's
compiler - a search of
  Sun compiler left operand must be modifiable lvalue
brought up several threads which illustrated similar
differences in this regard between gcc and Sun's compiler,
for example, in using functions that return a struct with
a const element.
