That's a new one. Looks like Erlang is unhappy about some tcp socket 
options it was told to use.

What version of erlang are you running? Just start an erlang shell with 
'erl' and report the number it displays.

Also, try running the following:

erl -sname test -kernel inet_default_listen_options \

and let me know whether that starts an erlang shell ok.

Finally, locate the rabbitmq-server script - it should live under 
/usr/lib/rabbitmq/bin/ - and change the line that reads
   exec erl \
   echo erl \
Then try to start the server normally (e.g. with 
"/etc/init.d/rabbitmq-server start") and send me the output of 
/var/log/rabbitmq/startup_log. That will tell me which options erlang is 
being started with.
