An incorrect DEFAULT_ORDER index is created against an ADODataSet/ADOQuery when the CommandText/SQL contains an 'Order By' clause. The 'Order By' clause is ignored.

This is a conciderable problem with MIDAS since the CDS has an incorrect DEFAULT_ORDER index.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and unzip the test case app from Attachments.
2. Open the test case app in D7.
3. Follow the on screen steps.

I updated the workaround. It could have caused a memory leak as it was.
