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(string s) {return new string(s);}
/* file: dups.h */
#ifndef __DUPS_H__
#define __DUPS_H__

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

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

#include "dups.h"

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

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

string * dupstring(string);
/* 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

/* file: session_crash */
