Hmm. One thing that's suspicious is the amount of ETS storage in use. 
Can you run:

erl -remsh rabbit@`hostname -s` -sname foo -eval '[io:format("~p~n", 
[ets:info(T)]) || T <- ets:all()], halt().'

(all one line)

from the command line and send me the result? You'll need to run it when 
logged in as the same user as the broker is running as.

Cheers, Simon
