This is the implementation of refGPtr for GstElement:

template <> GstElement* refGPtr<GstElement>(GstElement* ptr)
    if (ptr)

    return ptr;

So all you need do to assign it to a GRefPtr is to not call adoptGRef because it returns a floating reference.

Actually no, since positions is freed with g_free you can use the normal GOwnPtr.

In my code above it was a bit simpler/clearer and more effecient just under the block for GST_ITERATOR_OK. I think there's a risk that someone in the future who is refactoring this code could have the wrong idea about when the call is needed.
