rabbit-sasl.log has nothing to do with SASL. No, really.

At least, not *that* SASL. It's for Erlang's "System Application Support 
Libraries": http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/sasl/index.html

Yes, the naming is very unfortunate.

You can't run AMQP without any authentication - it's just that 
everything defaults to guest/guest, and that user exists by default. All 
you should need to do is:

1) Create another user with rabbitmqctl add_user
2) Grant that user permissions to the vhost it'll access with 
rabbitmqctl set_permissions
3) Configure your client to use the new user

That should still work. Of course, you should upgrade anyway :)
