xwlan widget / wlanstat crash on startup with damage profile

xwlan widget or wlanstat crashes on startup when profile data is somehow corrupted. No clue why profile got damaged. Tracked down to be a problem when the readprofile code tries to read from memory which does not belong to the current process. Popuplog.os2 entry -

Work around - delete the damaged profile from os2.ini with an ini editor. Of course you've to know which one is broken. For this you can make a debug build of wlanstat, fire up idebug, step through profile.c and find the problematic one or delete every one :-)

Better solution - use DosQueryMem? (thanks Dmik for the hint) and check data before reading.
