GtkEntry problem


I'm writing an application which needs some text-input from a little GtkEntry (about 10 chars). After I retrieve this string of characters (with gtk_entry_get_text placed in a callback-function), I pass thiss string on to another function, which I have written, for further processing etc...
The problem is obviously that gtk_entry_get_text returns

" a pointer to the contents of the widget as a string. This string points to internally allocated storage in the widget and must not be freed, modified or stored."

so this causes my application to crash, because I try to modify this string.

How can I retrieve the contents from a GtkEntry-field, and store and modify the contents as I see fit?

Appreciate any help,
