0006570: JvMemoryData easilly corrupts buffer when using many fields
TJvMemoryData.InitFieldDefsFromFields can easily corrupt the buffer without throwing any error.

The problem root is in this line:
Inc(Offset, CalcFieldLen(DataType, Size) + 1);

It just increases the offset without checking, if it causes a cycle getting an overflow when reaching values over 65535.

To reproduce it, it should be enough to load a data with 22 WideString fields. Each of them is initialised by default to hold 1500 chars, each char takes 2 bytes.
So 1500 * 2 * 22 = 66000 resulting in the buffer to be in between and corrupt memory.

Could you check if the issue is still present in the latest GIT content? If yes, please provide the zipped sources of an application showing this.

In the current version this line mentioned seems to have been changed to this one:
Inc(Offset, CalcFieldLen(FieldDefList[I].DataType, FieldDefList[I].Size) + 1);

While it looks different is still doesn't check if the offset variable (which is a Word) overflows.

There should be a if before actually incrementing offset ensuring that it is only incremented when it won't overflow. In case of an overflow raising an exception might be appropriate.
