[Catalyst] iterating ResultSet in controller vs. template

If I do something simple like this:

     my $myalums  =3D [ $c->model('MyDB::Alumni')->search({}, { rows =3D> 2=
0 })
] ;

and stash it:
    $c->stash->{alumni} =3D $myalums;

I am able to iterate in the template like:

   [% FOREACH alum IN alumni -%]
       id: [% alum.alumni_id %]  <br />
   [% END -%]

But if I try to iterate this in the controller, I cannot do something like:

    while (my $alum =3D $myalums->next) {
        $c->log->debug("id: ". $alum->alumni_id);

unless I dont return an anonymous reference like:

    my $myalums  =3D $c->model('MyDB::Alumni')->search({}, { rows =3D> 20 }=
) ;

then the while loop above works fine, but I dont get any output in the
template.  I'd like to be able to use the iteraters, so what am I doing
wrong here?
