Remote Desktop Gateway Service stops when in use

Hi,

Halfway throughout today I noticed that users where not able to use Remote Desktops Apps.
We have a Windows Server 2008 R2 RDS server with a SBS 2003 DC.

Any user that was in, was fine, but new connections would throw up a  'No RD Gateways available etc.....'I saw that the Remote Desktop Gateway service was stopped. I  started it okay and then tried to connected. I connected in for seconds until I got disconnected and the service stopped. I restarted it, waited for 4 minutes and tried to connect, same again, The service would stop when a connection was made.
I looked it up and applied a hotfix (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2497787) and rebooted, but it made no difference.
In the eventlog the following errors occur;

UPDATE: I needed a speedy resolve for the next morning. so throughout the night I removed the RD Roles and re applied them. It 'remembered' all the configuration from the published Apps, SSL Cert etc.. so users just connected as normal.
