      Description

      While finishing DM-19616, I noticed a problem with the multiprocessing Pool and a schema that contained a String Field. I added a test to afw that reproduces this error, and I will fix it on this ticket.

      E           lsst.pex.exceptions.wrappers.LengthError: 
      E             File "src/table/FieldBase.cc", line 72, in lsst::afw::table::FieldBase<std::__cxx11::basic_string<char> >::FieldBase(int)
      E               Size must be provided when constructing a string field. {0}
      E           lsst::pex::exceptions::LengthError: 'Size must be provided when constructing a string field.'
      

      My guess is that I need to tweak the pybind11 py::pickle code in schema.cc, possibly special-casing the String FieldBase type.
