[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ Crash

Since we don't know what the problem is and it happens rarely, there's no way to confirm even after upgrading that the problem has been fixed. Is there any more information that we can provide so you can troubleshoot the problem? Should we open a ticket using our support contract with SpringSource/RabbitMQ support?

We have no idea.

Correct. But it clearly is also very rare.

As I said in the other thread, the code around the area in which the crash occurred has changed substantially in the last few releases. So while upgrading may not fix the problem, there is a good chance that it will and if it doesn't then we'll get better data points to help us track down the problem.
