New database clear command at P64002
* P64002 Send+Dbase has been changed so it includes a DB clear command in the upload header for each DB.
* Changed because customers were fixing database problems on the PC and uploading it back into the indicator thinking that the old data is gone. However, the new uploaded data was being appended to the old data.
* This change will cause the old data to be cleared, and then new data will replace the old data.

New P64003 Send AllDB.
* Allows users to download their entire database(s) without the setup.

Enhanced DB checking to prevent erroneous Code 57. (FRAM DB corrupt)
* Fixed memory leaks
