How are you shutting down rabbit? If when starting rabbit a message like

=WARNING REPORT==== 13-Mar-2011::12:08:18 ===
msg_store_persistent: rebuilding indices from scratch

appears in the rabbit.log file then rabbit wasn't shut down cleanly and 
start up will take a while to recover the messages.

If, by contrast, rabbit was shut down cleanly, e.g. with 'rabbitmqctl 
stop', then the subsequent start up should be near instantaneous.
