As I said, the selector stuff is still on the cards, I've already
started work on it, but it's not going to happen in the short term
unfortunately due to

a) issues surrounding compatibility with the spec and other implementations;
b) the effect adding this functionality will have on general scalability.

However, if there was some contribution, it may go quicker ;-)

Can you run rabbit straight out of the shell?

$ erl -mnesia dir SOME_DIR -boot start_sasl -s rabbit

Probably not. I would start by deleting the directory that contains
the mnesia files, start again and see if you can reproduce this.

BTW, I'm cc'ing the list, somebody else may have tried this as well.
