Unfortunately, disabling the agent doesn't seem to help.  The second
time I tried this, I _was_ able to edit the agent to disable it, but
the Queues page was still broken.  Same after I deleted the offending
agent, Continuum still tried to contact it.

In possibly related news, I notice that even though the agent no
longer shows on the 'Build Agents' page, it is still in the
continuum.xml config file, at least until you re-start.

Interestingly, if you add a new agent that does not respond, it will
get added as disabled, and this does _not_ break the Queues page.

Where is the "real" data about what agents there are and which ones
are enabled?

Anecdotally, it seems like it's working from continuum.xml and not
what I see in the web UI.
