The latter is on a different connection though, right? i.e. you are not 
receiving messages on the same connection that has a stuck 
exchange.declare, are you? That would be odder still.

Most synchronous AMQP commands have an async variant, triggered by 
setting the nowait flag. We don't expose convenience methods for that in 
the API but you can use Channel.asyncRpc(Method method) to send commands 
like that, e.g.

import com.rabbitmq.client.impl.AMQImpl.Exchange;

         channel.asyncRpc(new Exchange.Declare.Builder()
