This implies that you're running into some OS-imposed limit on the 
number of (OS not Erlang) processes. When you do that, Bad Things are 
likely to happen.

I also see a bunch of errors along the lines of:

=ERROR REPORT==== 14-Feb-2012::20:51:30 ===
Mnesia(wosnfs at dell39): ** ERROR ** mnesia_event got 
{inconsistent_database, running_partitioned_network, wosnfs at dell33}

in machine 4's log, which is another bad sign - RabbitMQ clusters are 
not designed to tolerate network partitions.

I'll look into some of the other error messages that are showing up in 
your logs; it's possible some of then are real, but you have some bad 
things going on underneath RabbitMQ - you need to sort those out first,

Cheers, Simon
