Objects that are not pointers disappear from TCanvas


Why are objects that are drawn on a TCanvas* not persistent if they are not a pointer? Please run the attached script to see the effect. Is there any way to make the the second TLatex object persistent?

ROOT v5.32/01 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit.

Thank you,
print.C (476 Bytes)

if not a pointer the text does not enter the gPad list of primitives:

Processing print.C...

If an object is declared on the stack (i.e. is not a pointer) by definition of C++, they are destructed when they go out of scope and thus does not survive past the end of the function.
