Thanks a lot, David, this works like a charm.

My code:

namespace boost { namespace python {
  struct copy_map_key_ptr
    template <class T>
    struct apply
      typedef Map::value_type result_converter;
      struct type
        bool convertible() const {return true;}
        PyObject* operator()(Map::value_type p) const
          { return incref(object(ptr(p.first)).ptr()); }
        typedef PyObject* result_type;
