Yes, I suspect you were overwhelming the broker with messages (which 
were waiting to get into a queue or on to disc, they take up more memory 
that way) - then memory use exploded to the point where the kernel oom 
killer took Rabbit out.

When using the direct client the normal safeties are off, the client 
will not slow down in the presence of flow control or memory alarms 
unless you make it.
