This sounds similar to an issue that was fixed in 1.7.0 ("prevent
timeouts of rabbitmqctl when the server is busy").  Could you migrate
to 1.7.0 and see if it solves your problem?

(Note that migrating from 1.5.4 to 1.7.0 involves a database schema
change - see the "Upgrading" section of the release notes at
