[rabbitmq-discuss] Question on Java Client

I am working in an environment where Java/Python interop is important, 
so I have been trying to get the Java RabbitMQ client API and the 
Django/Celery tasks to work together. I can now successfully submit jobs 
to the CeleryD task queue and have them executed, but the call to 
channel.basicPublish() hangs.... It appears to be blocking while waiting 
on a response, but using a traffic sniffer, I see that the response has 
been received already. Could anyone suggest steps to find the cause? Is 
there a way to turn up the logging on the RabbitMQ API?

Anyhow, Thanks in advance for the assistance. Here are the vital stats:

Platform: Ubuntu 64 - 10.10 (Maverick)
RabbitMQ Version: 1.7.2
RabbitMQ API Version: 1.7.2
Celery Version: 2.2.4
Python Version: 2.6.5

Example Code:

package com.dns.celery.publisher;

import com.rabbitmq.client.AMQP;
import com.rabbitmq.client.ConnectionFactory;
import com.rabbitmq.client.Connection;
import com.rabbitmq.client.Channel;
import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Calendar;
import java.util.GregorianCalendar;
import java.util.TimeZone;
import java.util.UUID;
import org.apache.log4j.Appender;
import org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender;
import org.apache.log4j.Level;
import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
import org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout;
