[Mono-list] Embedded Mono using DllImport(__Internal) and returning string

I'm using Embedded Mono and P/Invoke DllImport.   If I have a method which
returns a string

  [DllImport("__Internal", EntryPoint = "CSharp_Test_ReturnString")]
    public extern static string CSharp_Test_ReturnString();

The corresponding "C" method should strdup the string right?

extern "C"
  char* CSharp_Test_ReturnString()
    QString sv = "QString allocated";
    return strdup((const char*)sv.toAscii());    

Won't the CLR free that string for me?
