It entirely depends on the size of the messages. Also note that until
you ack a message explicitly, or set the NoAck option on consumption,
Rabbit will not forget about messages.

Ok, you're setting noAck true, so you shouldn't need to ack explicitly.

Expiration is not implemented. There is no notion of Time To Live or
messages expiring in RabbitMQ. This is an oft requested feature and is
high on our todo list, but is not in active development yet.

Err, that's odd, that's only about 8MB of RAM. How much RAM do you have
in this machine that's available to Rabbit? Also, before it crashes,
rabbitmqctl list_queues name messages messages_unacknowledged memory
as that might give you some more information.
