Do you know what happened? Did it run out of disk space by any chance?

Right. It looks like some of the data got corrupted though. We have a 
bug open to make rabbit skip over such data on restart - we already do 
this elsewhere on recovery, but not in this particular case.

Try deleting 
/var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/rabbit at curtiz/queues/67BZ7QWHYIY1S405V2E0881G9/37.idx. 
Hopefully that will allow rabbit to start with at least some of the data 
still present.
