 From the reference to "rabbit_mgmt_database" I think Nick was trying to 
run a very early version of the management plugin. However, there's no 
version early enough to run on 1.x.

Nick, to fix your immediate problem, have you run 
rabbitmq-deactivate-plugins? Versions 1.x of RabbitMQ required you to 
run rabbitmq-(de)activate-plugins whenever you installed / uninstalled 

If that doesn't work, I think you should seek out and destroy files 
called "rabbit.boot", "rabbit.rel" and "rabbit.script". I can't remember 
where 1.x put them though.

Of course, upgrading to 2.1.1 is still recommended :)

Cheers, Simon
