Will get you over this particular hurdle.

But you have major ownership issues.  Your B object ought to be
created within a Python object

	pyB = class_<B>("B", init<float>())
		.add_property("value", &B::Value, &B::SetValue)

    object b = pyB(10);

or held by a shared_ptr:

	boost::shared_ptr<B> b(new B(10));

Your A ought to hold a shared_ptr<B>, and you shouldn't use
return_internal_reference on GetB: that's only for when the return
value is a subobject of an argument to the method (self in this case).
