It occurs to me that the problem you are seeing may be the same as that 
experienced by Billy Chasen, except you are running a more recent 
version of Erlang and hence it gets reported slightly differently.

To check whether that is the case, please perform the same test Billy ran:

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. Do this for both the original init.d 
script containing the "cd /", and your modified version containing "cd
