They are completely unrelated, unfortunately: this one persists even
after the fix above went in.

The problem boils down to

$ cat cc.c
#include <string.h>

const char *str = "msg";

func (char *str)
  (void) strlen (str);

call (void)
  func (str);
$ g++ -c -O2 -Wall -c cc.c
cc.c: In function 'void call()':
cc.c:14:12: error: invalid conversion from 'const char*' to 'char*'
   func (str);
cc.c:6:1: note:   initializing argument 1 of 'void func(char*)'
 func (char *str)

However (as I wasn't aware initially), you can simply cast the constness
away in all calls to mvwaddstr.  I'll give that a whirl.
