Does anyone know if the text returned by gtk_clist_get_text() needs to be freed

You can tell quite easily from looking at the gtk_clist_get_text()

    *text = GTK_CELL_TEXT (clist_row->cell[column])->text;

i.e. it returns a pointer to the internal copy of text, so you
shouldn't free it.

Is this (finally) documented?  There's really no reason why people who
use an API need to look at the API's source to determine proper
behavior for their applications.
