Ah. Thanks for the report.

So it seems that there is an incompatibility between the AMQP direct 
client and the LDAP plugin's {other_bind, as_user} mode. This will 
affect bits of the management plugin and some other plugins (STOMP for 

This is especially noticeable since {other_bind, as_user} is the default 
since 2.8.0.

If it's acceptable to you, you can work around this by setting 
{other_bind, anon} or {other_bind, {"username", "password"}} under 
rabbitmq_auth_backend_ldap in your configuration file.
