So this turns out to be a bug which can cause startup for the whole
broker to fail when mochiweb takes too long (more than five seconds) to
start an HTTP listening socket.
On Julien's machine this was happening because mochiweb tries to look up
"localhost" as an IPv6 address, and it was taking a while to time out.
In case anybody else is bitten by this, you can download a version of
rabbitmq_mochiweb which will wait longer than 5s from:
...although the "correct" fix is probably to have IPv6 working properly,
or turned off.
