[omniORB] Cleaning up after string_to_object

Why not use CORBA::Object_var?  For example:

CORBA::Object_var obj = orb->string_to_object(s);

That's what the IDL to C++ mapping describes. I am not familiar with
the types _CORBA_ObjRef_Var, etc. Are those internal types used by
omniORB? If you stick to the mapping you'll be fine (and your code
will be more portable).
