org.vfny.geoserver.wfs.requests.TransactionHanlder only takes the first line of a multiline attribute value. This is in tha famouse characters(char, int, int) method.

<p>the other problematic class was TransactionFeatureHandler.
Changed a couple of things: lazy parsing of the actual attribute value (through AttributeType.parse()), the whole content is gathered into a StringBuffer first until we reach the end of the element's content, since characters(char, int, int) is called many times until it provides the whole content.
Also did some slight speed optimizations, since there was a huge waste of resources constructing logging messages which were not to be used (added the tipical if(LOGGER.isLoggeable...) and avoid multiple creation of the String fragment by directly adding the sub-char-array to the string buffer.</p>
<p>Now we can insert huge Strings! I am inserting a couple megs strings in a postgres Text field with great success. </p>
