[rabbitmq-discuss] Queues and auto_delete

I have a queue where auto_delete = false (using rabbitmqctl
list_queues to verify), When I close the last connection, it goes
away. Are there other factors that determine whether a queue is
automatically deleted?

Also, queues where auto_delete = true seems to be deleted
*immediately* after the last channel is closed. IIRC, the broker
should wait for a period of time to allow clients to disconnect and
reconnect without losing messages.
