Entry widgets & text pointers

I have a question about gtk_entry_get_text or equivalently
Gdk_Entry::get_text.  It returns a gchar *.  Is this a pointer into
something internal to the Entry widget structure?  Or is it a pointer to a
copy of the text?  In other words, am I free to modify the returned
string, and do I need to delete it?

If this is in the documentation somewhere, please point me to it.
