Gateway Network Fixed If the last message in a queue is invalid, and has not been removed yet when the "take" message is called, the queue can block forever. This will have many repercussions, and can dramatically affect a system until reboot or the connection is reset.

EAM Fixed EAM Agent Setup wizard would not list a server as a selectable controller if it was on the other side of a proxy Gateway Network connection.
EAM Fixed EAM Agent Events are marked as "initial events" on first occurence, blocking notification through pipelines with default gateway settings. Should not be marked this way, because they are actual observed events, not the "inital" state.
EAM Fixed Gateway Status page could not be immediately opened if the EAM controller could not be reached over the Gateway Network.
EAM Fixed EAM tasks would time out if the task took longer than 60 seconds to run. The task timeout is now set to 60 minutes.
