The above configuration is invalid. The entry should be

{kernel, [{inet_dist_use_interface, {127,0,0,1}}]}

The fact that rabbit started up fine suggests that it didn't read the 
config at all. Check the broker start up log, which should contain the line

config file(s) : /etc/rabbitmq/rabbitmq.config

if the config was read.

Furthermore, to change the interface to which EPMD binds, you need to 
set the ERL_EPMD_DIST_BIND environment variable, e.g.
