[rabbitmq-discuss] Pika channels sensitive to prior operation state?

Following up on this problem, I've narrowed the issue down to a trivial
example that hangs:

import pika
HOSTNAME = ""  # Plug in your own server name here.

if __name__ == '__main__':
    connection =
pika.BlockingConnection(pika.ConnectionParameters(host=HOSTNAME, port=5672))
    channel = connection.channel()

        method_frame, _, body = channel.basic_get(queue="NotAValidQueue")
    except Exception as e:
        print "channel.basic_get threw %s - This is expected" % (e)
        print "channel.basic_get unexpectedly did not throw an exception."

    print "Before channel.tx_select - Will hang on next line."
    print "After channel.tx_select - Unexpectedly got here."
