That's good to know. The more factors we can eliminate as possible 
causes the better.

That code connects to "rabbitmq-dev". Is that a load balancer sitting in 
front of the three nodes?

How do you deal with the disconnects resulting from the shutting down of 
nodes? There doesn't seem to be any code to handle that.

Mind you, I suspect that the failure should still be reproducible 
without any subscriptions and publishes. Would be good to try that and 
just watch the broker logs for errors.

Thanks for posting these. There is an error in the logs that we haven't 
seen before:


Looking at the code, this appears to indicate that there are no 
master/mirror processes left for the queue. Which is...unexpected. That 
should give us something to go on.
