If I step through that address calculation:

15de0bd2 8a843700040000  mov     al,byte ptr [edi+esi+400h] ds:002b:84320483=??

This looks like an integer overflow:

int base;
int index;

if (base + index > argMaxSize)
 goto error;

Because it's a signed comparison, 7ffffffd + 5 is

0:022> ? ecx + eax
Evaluate expression: -2147483646

Which is less than 0x3f1, the size parameter. Those values are directly from the executable being scanned.
