Can I assume now that you can use the lightweight client to perform
the queue creation/delete?

Can I also ask some questions about how the Java client is running:

- What is the network connection to the broker like?
- Have you tried setting a higher heartbeat in the client (the default
is 3 seconds)?
- What OS are the clients running (this is a long shot because it
shouldn't matter, but we do know of a *bug* in the .NET Socket API in
this regard)?

Depends what *normal* is :-)
