You are probably seeing this, fixed in 3.0.2:

25353 fix issue preventing idle queues from hibernating sometimes

The key point is that queues GC when they are working, and when they 
hibernate. A queue that is not doing work but has also not hibernated 
might not GC for a long time. So an upgrade is suggested after all :-)
