Not true:  

KvpValue *vald, *vallist;
GList *list, *list2;
vald = kvp_value_new_double(1.0);
list = g_list_append(NULL, vald);
//list is now a GList of KvpValues
vallist = kvp_value_new_glist(list);

list2 = kvp_value_get_glist(valllist);
//No frames to be found.

Right, it returns a null pointer.

huh?  What GList?  There _is_ no GList if value->type != KVP_TYPE_GLIST.

Exactly.  That's why it doesn't make sense to mention a kvp_frame in
the description for:
 GList       * kvp_value_get_glist(const KvpValue * value);

or any other kvpvalue subtypes.
