Description

Submitting forms in today's build is very slow -- so slow it's like the app has 
crashed.

The reason is that scc turned off chunking in nsString, and that wallet and 
single signon builds up strings one character at a time when processing form 
data. So a lot of time is spent in memory allocation.

I'll fix this by doing some manual string chunking in SI_ReadLine and 
Wallet_GetLine.

This would have been a blocker had QA seen it.

Simon, thanks for looking out for me.  As module owner, of course I give my 
approval to these changes in wallet and single signon and appreciate your taking 
the initiative to having done it.
