Well spotted. The problem is two-fold. Firstly, rabbitmq-multi does not 
pay any attention to the settings of NODENAME, NODE_IP_ADDRESS and 
NODE_PORT. Secondly - and that's what is actually causing the error you 
reported - setting any of these vars in /etc/default/rabbitmq will 
override any settings provided by rabbitmq-multi.

I have filed bugs to get these fixed.
