Problem Description: I have an SQL Server DB table with an XML Field in it. When I query that DB then pass the results to WDDX, it crashes. This was not an issues in CF 9

Steps to Reproduce:

<cfquery name="qryData">
DECLARE @data xml = '<ul class="xoxo"><li><span><b>Config</b> [<var>1</var>]:</span><code>compliance</code></li></ul>'

SELECT @data AS Conf

<cfwddx action = "cfml2wddx" input = "#qryData#" output = "wddxText">

Actual Result:

Hard error. See screenshot

"Invalid cast exception for WDDX recordset "

Expected Result:

Nice WDDX data

Any Workarounds:

In T-SQL, if the value is cast to CONVERT(varchar(max), Data) AS Config, then CF 2016 is OK
