Yes, I imagined this, I don't expect it to succeed when a queue is  
although this might change some things. What if I connect with an  
auto_delete queue
non durable and in the middle of a transaction I disconnect it? Of  
course one way would
be to simply leave the queue there, but at some point the mnesia db  
would be full.

Why? This is completely unexpected to me... Also I don't think this is  
true because
I don't see the connection dropped error on the client side that I  
usually see
when I stop rabbitmq server.

Sure, it's just that dropping the connection because a transaction  
makes the commit_failed message completely useless. Just use the
connection dropped error to mean the same thing, I'm not sure this is  
right behavior (from a logic point of view). If a database dropped the  
every time a transaction failed they would spend more time off rather  
than doing
anything. That's why I think it's an error, after all transactions are  
isolated and
a rollback is there exactly to be able to go back to the beginning  
without any

erlang client and rabbitmq server.
