Fix or workaround for large calculated string field bug in XE7?

Hi! Since upgrading to XE7, we have had some problems with access violations for calculated string fields of large (max) size. At first, we thought this was related to the new version of NexusDB (see e.g. http://www.nexusdb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19043), but now we have learned that this was a VCL code problem that has been fixed in XE8, see Notes in http://www.nexusdb.com/mantis/view.php?id=1937. Upgrading to XE8 is not an option for us right now (both due to license costs and that we do not have ti
me for upgrading our development and build environments at the moment (we use lots of third party libraries, some of them old, which makes migration non-trivial)). Is there anyway we can get this fix available for XE7, or is there some workaround that we could use until the next time we upgrade our Delphi environments? Feedback on this would be much appreciated.

Best regards
