segfault dup'ing string through C++ (via swig) module

I'm trying to make a very simple extension which will return a new copy
of a C++ string object to python, and I'm segfaulting in the process.
I'm using Python 2.2.2, SWIG 1.3.17 and g++ 3.3.
Am I getting something very basic wrong? See code below.

/* file: dups.cxx */
#include "dups.h"
string * dupstring(strin g s) {return new string(s);}
/* file: dups.h */
#ifndef __DUPS_H__
#define __DUPS_H__

#include <string>
using namespace std;
string * dupstring(strin g s);

/* file: dups.i */
%module dups

#include "dups.h"

/* Convert from C++ --> Python */
%typemap(out) string {
$result = PyString_FromSt ring($1.c_str() );

/* Convert from Python --> C++ */
%typemap(in) string {
$1 = PyString_AsStri ng($result);

string * dupstring(strin g);
/* file: makefile */

CFLAGS = -gstabs+ -O3 -fpic

_dups.so: dups.o dups_wrap.o
g++ -shared -o $@ $?

%.o: %.cpp
g++ -c $(CFLAGS) -o $@ $?

%.o: %.cxx
g++ -I/usr/include/python2.2 -c $(CFLAGS) -o $@ $?

%_wrap.cxx: %.i
swig -c++ -python $?

rm -f *.o dups_wrap.* *.so dups.py dups.pyc

I've written a function in C to perform protein sequence alignment. This works fine in a standalone C program. I've added the necessary packaging to use it in Python; it returns three strings and an integer. However, as soon as the function is complete, I get a segfault and the interpreter dies. If I run Python interactively, just calling the function causes a segfault. If I'm running a script, I can actually print out the return...

I get a segfault in the following scenario (I am not really used to pointers...): I have a base class Animal and a derived class Dog. Now I construct two Dogs and store pointers to them in a set<Dog*>. Beforing storing, the Dog pointers are passed through a function taking Animal pointers and dynamic_cast'ing them to Dog pointers. Looks good to me, but it segfaults. Why? Here is my code:

Folks, I am hitting a segfault while free()ing allocated memory - to make it short, I have a linked list, which I try to free node-by-node. While free()ing the 28th node (of total 40), I hit a segfault. This is legacy code. I tried debugging this problem, and am not able to come up with a valid reason for this. Following function is being used to free: void DBFreePUF (DBPUFRec *userp) {

Hello All, The built-in mac osx vecLib is segfaulting in some cases--A very fun fact to find out the hard way over two nights of work. I also spent an embarrassing amount of time figuring out just where. Although I'm in quite a self-congratulatory mood right now, in the future, I feel like I could save a lot of time by coercing the interpreter to spew forth method calls to stderr. Is this possible?

I have a Python module that I have written using the C API and I am having a problem accessing a dictionary from that module. Here is what I have done: 1. In my init function I call module = Py_InitModule ("name", methods); 2. then I get the module's __dict__ structure: dict = PyModule_GetDict (module); 3. Later, I insert a dictionary that I have constructed using the PyDict_* API
