Why does a Disabled Agent move back to the "Enabled" status?

Problem description: A while after setting an Agent to the "Disabled" status, it shows up as "Enabled" and participates in distributed builds.

Solution/Workaround: In principle setting the Agent to the "Disabled" status should indeed prevent the Agent from working. However, there are two Agent Settings option that can bring a disabled Agent back to life:

1. Agent|Preference page, "On system start-up" option: This option is set by default to "Enable Agent". Changing it to "Keep last Agent State" will make sure the Agent remains disabled between user sessions.

2. Agent|Preferences page, "Enable Agent while screensaver is running" option: disabling this option will ensure the Agent remains disabled even when the system screen saver starts.
