Just to be absolutely clear here: you mean they had consumers once, and 
then the consumers all went away? If the queue never has consumers it 
will not autodelete (otherwise it would autodelete as soon as you 
created it).

If you do mean that there were once consumers and the queue is still not 
getting deleted, then yes, that would be wrong. We do test for this 
though :-) so a test program would be helpful.

Cheers, Simon
