Yeah, I can reproduce the bug.  From my point of view, it's a bug in
GStreamer itself:

(FYI, here's what happens: When you run your code,
GStreamer::Registry->get_default calls gst_registry_get_default which
returns a floating registry object with refcount 1.  When the Perl
bindings get to it, they ref and sink it, which produces a registry that
still has a refcount of 1 but is not floating anymore.  Now, when you
reach the end of the "test" sub, the lexical $reg is destroyed -- so the
Perl wrappers also release their grip on the registry object, which
means decrementing the refcount.  Since the refcount was 1 before, it
now drops to 0 and the registry is finalized.  Then, when you want to
create a new element, GStreamer complains that it cannot find a usable
default registry.)
