[typo] Update to 849, sidebars break typo

After further investigation, I think I tracked my problem down to a Ruby 
upgrade on my FreeBSD server.  A couple of other typo blogs that hadn't 
been updated to 849 were having the same issue.  I dropped Ruby down to 
1.8.2 and the sidebars started working again.
