../src/keys/listkey.cpp: In method `const char *ListKey::getText ()
../src/keys/listkey.cpp:286: passing `const ListKey' as `this' argument
of `SWKey *ListKey::GetElement (int = -1)' discards qualifiers
make[2]: *** [listkey.lo] Error 1

The problem here is that ListKey::getText is a const member function and it is calling 
ListKey::GetElement which is not const.
If ListKey::GetElement is made const it isn't allowed to modify error so that would need to be 
or if ListKey::getText is to be made non-const then lots of other things need changed.

erm, which is it to be?
