These lines are for handling the SI pointer field. Data is the pointer
field, which contains the byte offset to the actual data (usually 0). "+ 1"
for the pointer field itself.
The order of the two statements need to be reversed. First fix the length,
then the data pointer:
Length -= Data + 1;
Data += Data + 1;
