[Lcdproc] config_get_string

I saw (while debugging) that the use of the configfile functions in
lcdm001.c was not yet completely safe, the string should be copied
(it does currently work, but for how long...). I have made the
comment in the configfile.h file a bit clearer.

char *config_get_string( char * sectionname, char * keyname,
int skip, char * default_value );
// Returns a pointer to the string associated with the specified key.
// The string should never be modified, and used only short-term. You
// for example scan it or copy it. In successive calls this function
// re-use the data space !

Can you please copy the string ?
