btw, it is somewhat nonsensical to make an auto-delete queue 
non-durable. Durability ensures that a queue survives broker restarts, 
while auto-deletion ensures it gets deleted when the last consumer 
vanishes. But of course restarting the broker causes all consumers to 
vanish, so the queue will disappear. The only exception is when the 
queue hasn't had any consumers yet when the broker stops.
