This comes from the code in Glib that handles boxed types.  It turns out
that we don't have a boxed wrapper for G_TYPE_GSTRING.  (To our defense,
this WebKit API is the first instance of GString occurring in an API that
I've seen.)  The boxed wrapper would most likely be a very thin shell around
newSVpv and SvPV.  The G_TYPE_STRV wrapper might serve as an example.

(this time with a *reply to all*, sorry Torsten for the spam)

I can add the box type to Gtk3::WebKit but shouldn't it be better to
add it to Glib?

Yes, it should live in Glib.

What I don't get is that it was working fine previously. I was able to
do $data->{str} to access the content of the string.

That sounds like GString was handled as a bare struct back then, not as a boxed type. Maybe g-ir-scanner changed in the meantime, or maybe the Perl bindings. But regardless, you shouldn't have to do $data->{str}. GString should be mapped to and from normal Perl strings.
