Seg fault from fakeit none

Jeremy Sanders produced a seg fault in xspec when running 'fakeit none none none none' when no datasets had been read in. He tracked this down to an error in allocating memory for a string in fakeit.c. Fixed this as 11.3.1t.

NB Jeremy used valgrind to check the memory useage. Looks like a useful Linux tool for memory checking and profiling.

Keywords: xspec
