[rabbitmq-discuss] After server notifies of canceled consume, it doesn't acknowledge a channel close

Look closer and the inconsistency is clear.  In both cases the only problem
is that the client wants to consume from a queue, but the queue's
nonexistence makes that impossible.  Yet in one case the channel gets
closed; in the other, it doesn't.  Why should nonexistent queue at start be
a channel exception, but nonexistent queue later not be one?  Makes no
sense to me.  IMO neither case should be a channel exception.  Too late to
change it of course.

BTW the client code isn't general-purpose, so you need not worry that any
(other) users will be inconvenienced by my idiosyncrasy.
