I have a proof of concept hotfix that fixes with this issue since December, but I was informed that there would be no formal hotfix and it would be rolled into 5.0.3 in "late last quarter 2015" so thats any time between January and the end of March .
I can't release it to you but if you want to check with support its down as Proof of Concept Release for Bug 1100511 and 1102392
Agent is 5.02 Build 257
So the best way would be to wait for it until March 2016?
Thats up to you, personally I'm running 22.214.171.1248 on most of my ePO instances but also 126.96.36.1997 as an eval for windows 10 machines.
I do have another ePO with agents on 188.8.131.52 that im just living with the bug on, thats at the sites request though.
If you speak to support you should be able to get that POC version 257, whether you use it in peroduction is up to you.
