That's one problem. The second one is that the type is specified as 
"amq.fanout" rather than "fanout".

Btw, the error returned by rabbit in both cases is actually quite 
informative, so it would be a good idea to display the 
ShutdownSignalException (it has a toString method that returns something 
sensible, though strangely it doesn't specify a message; I have filed a 
bug to change that). The RabbitMQ server log should contain useful info 
as well that helps tracking down this sort of problem.
