Subject: Returning caml values from C

Hi everybody.

I have a C function that, given a list of caml values, returns a certain
sublist of those values.

Currently, I have the C code build up a caml list using caml_alloc and
Store_field. But when I try to access those values in caml, I get a

I suspect the GC is deleting the input list, because it doesn't realize I've
made something new that refers to some of those values. How do I tell the GC
that something refers to some value?
