It seems to be doing that. But when an additional /Transfer/ annotation
comes into play things start to go worse.

The following code snippet reproduces the issue:


The interesting bits are the (almost) last two lines of the loop

* pt_g.clone() is a /Factory/ method

* The QgsGeometry constructor has a /Transfer/ annotation on the
parameter, if this one is not called, everything goes well.

Here are the first couple of lines of the output:


new pt  0x5d98240
new pt  0x5f257c0
new pt  0x4283da0
new pt  0x5d98240
WHAT??????!!!!!  0x5f257c0
new pt  0x629fa60
new pt  0x5d3c470
WHAT??????!!!!!  0x5d98240
new pt  0x2e2ac90
new pt  0x4283da0
new pt  0x5dcef50
new pt  0x5f770d0
new pt  0x629fa60
WHAT??????!!!!!  0x5d98240


Any idea what the additional Transfer of the object triggers?

Best regards
