So how long are you waiting when determining it's hanging? Less than 30 

Because that looks like Rabbit is waiting for another cluster node (if 
it was not the last to shut down, but is the first to start up, it will 
wait for the one that was the last to shut down. But it will only wait 
for 30 seconds before spitting out an error. I'm not sure how else you 
could get it to stop there *without* any further output though.
