fix for CVS feature OpenBSD sparc64 bus error

Hi, I've been plagued by a bus error running the CVS feature
branch on OpenBSD sparc64 for a while now.  It was particularly
difficult because a lot of the time it would mess up my debugger,
which gave dwarf errors, or dumped me in the wrong place on break
points, etc.  Anyway, I finally tracked it down and fixed it.
It's a type error, (which was even generating a warning) and I'm
guessing it was causing stack corruption.
