Right. I guess that $vbox->add is an XS function?
You have to do extra work to correctly access tied magic stuff from XS.

Here's what Devel::Peek shows for a value returned from a "plain" hash:

SV = RV(0x6b7e18) at 0x792110
  REFCNT = 1
  RV = 0x65db30
  SV = PVHV(0x6b7850) at 0x65db30

and for a value returned from a tied hash (such as Tie::IxHash):

SV = PVLV(0x6b0860) at 0x7925e0
  REFCNT = 1
  IV = 0
  NV = 0
  PV = 0
  MAGIC = 0x79a440
    MG_VIRTUAL = &PL_vtbl_packelem
    MG_TYPE = PERL_MAGIC_tiedelem(p)
    MG_FLAGS = 0x02

That's why assigning the value to a dummy variable "works": it clears
the tie magic.

Cheers, Roderich
