He needs something like this:

auto_ptr<class> function () {
    return new class;

The difference is C++ constructs the object, not Python.

I spawned a thread asking this question many moons ago. The OP is advised
to Google for my distinctive street name and auto_ptr and shared_ptr to
learn the tricks and traps here. I recall that the 'build_class<>' or
whatever template must appear above a function like this or else
'to_python' won't find enough traits to go on.
