I was asking more about the runtime cookie-seeking behavior.

My guess is the root of the problem here is that the environment, specifically $HOME, 
isn't changed when a regular user is interactively running 'sudo rabbitmq-server' per
http://www.rabbitmq.com/install.html#running-macports. $HOME remains ~russell, so 
that's where the cookie is found:

russell at shard ~: sudo su -m rabbitmq -c "echo $HOME"
