setTimeout and setInterval string support

Reported by Wes Biggs | January 2nd, 2009 @ 02:53 PM

window.setTimeout and window.setInterval need to support strings as well as functions.

The following patch line can be put as the first line of both functions.

    if (typeof fn == 'string') {
            var fnstr = fn; 
            fn = function() { 

However, we may want to consider if this should work for String objects (as opposed to primitives), or generally perform a toString on anything that's not a function.
