Since the 'master' queue is exclusive, and there is nothing unusual in 
the rabbit logs indicating any rabbit-internal problems (you've checked 
the sasl log as well, right?) the only way that queue can vanish is for 
it to be either deleted explicitly by the creating connection or for the 
connection to have been closed.

Can't see how federation would have anything to do with this since it is 
not touching user queues.
