Symptoms

After application of Patch 7418497, FCT_CancelTimer fails to cancel timer on some EDRs. This results in response sent from processing pipeline is duplicated by response from timeout pipeline.

To rephrase: network gets two responses for one request. One (from processing pipeline) as soon as request is processed, second (from the timeout pipeline) when the timer on that particular EDR expires.

Expected result
==================
There should be exactly one response from the gateway for each request: either from processing pipeline or from the timeout pipeline depending on request processing time.

Actual result
==================
For some requests responses are sent from both pipelines.
