Do not mix RFA_String and std::string in Reuters RFA !!!!!!!

Some days, it's good to Always Be Coding. Today, it wasn't.

I just spent an entire day chasing down a problem, trying to merge the Reuters OMM API into our MarketFeed-based app. Thanks to Apurva, I was led to a small paragraph in a Readme file that said:

Known Deficiencies
- Mixing of RFA_String and std::string in application interface and implementation

As soon as I got rid of the std::string references in the code, everything magically worked!
