Actually, that's XS.
In your first example, you're returning an SV* you looked up in the hash, so you don't own it. Inline::C works by generating an XS file and running xsubpp, and XS mortalizes any SV* that you return via its RETVAL mechanism. Thus, you've mortalized an SV* owned by the hash. Which is not at all pointed out by the Inline documentation (it should be in Inline::C-Cookbook), and the description in perlxs seems suspicious to me to (it claims that RETVAL is mortalized via the typemap file, but I'm looking at the typemap and I see no relevant mention of 'mortal' anywhere -- nor any mention of RETVAL.)
So I think this should work:
and it prints "Dying!" before "Done."
In general, I would also recommend using <<'CEND' rather than <<CEND for blocks of Inline code, because if you want to insert a debugging printf("Got here!\n"), then you don't really want that \n to be translated to a newline.
I work for Reactrix Systems, and am willing to admit it.
