Might have spoken too soon, or different issue. I get the following backtrace only with 1.260 and not 1.240.
To reproduce I simply used the latest Git versions of Glib::Soup and Gtk2::WebKit, and did:

 Â$view = Gtk2::WebKit::WebView->new;
 Â$session = Gtk2::WebKit->get_default_session;

Glib::Soup should not be used. This was my attempt at building
bindings by hand until Glib::Object::Introspection was announced.
The modules HTTP::Soup and HTTP::Soup::Gnome are the way to go.
There's a reason why Glib::Soup is not in CPAN. The module is incomplete.

I would suggest that programs using Glib::Soup get migrated to
HTTP::Soup and programs using Gtk2::WebKit migrate to load WebKit's
bindings through Glib's introspection either through Gtk3::WebKit or

Even if you use Gtk2, you can still use Gtk3::WebKit. Simply load the
module with:

  # Backward compatible mode with Gtk2 using glib introspection
  use Gtk3::WebKit version => '1.0', package => 'Gtk2::WebKit';

The above code snippet will do this (which is how to load a glib
introspection library):

  # Load Gtk2::WebKit through glib introspection
  use Glib::Object::Introspection;
    basename => 'WebKit',
    version => '1.0',
    package => 'Gtk2::WebKit',
