Changes to the StringChunk class

This applies to the hsmf component in the scratchpad area.

The setValue method in StringChunk class uses default platform encoding to convert stream parameter into String. This conversion doesn't work when the OS is Linux.

The solution was to test chunk type and set encoding used to convert the Stream to String :
  - if type is "NEW_STRING" (indeed Unicode) : we set encoding to "UTF16-LE"
  - if type is "OLD_STRING" : we set encoding to "CP1252"

Thanks for this. Applied to svn with a few tweaks.
