[kaffe] [PATCH] make Double parse doubles from long strings

When investigating a regression in BigDecimal i found out that
java.lang.Double truncates strings that it tries to parse to MAXNUMLEN
(defined to 64 in include/defs.h) before parsing it to a double.
The attached patch makes the java-string to c-string conversion be made
onto dynamically allocated memory.
If someone wonders why this is important it is because the test
fails. It turns out that BigDecimal.doubleValue() is implemented by
sending BigDecimal.toString() to Double.parseDouble(). Of course
BigDecimal.toString() returns a string 1000 chars long.
ps. the mauve regressions when comparing 1.1.4 to HEAD cvs is steadily
shrinking. Now down to 6 uninvestigated.
