I wish I could help, but what I can tell you is that this stuff is a 
pain. When I was writing C extensions by hand, I think I managed to 
always pass in a results array, so I didn't have to create anything new 
in the extension to avoid these issues.

Now I use Cython to avoid them -- you may want to give that a look-see. 
It can save a lot of pain.
