badmatch just means we saw some result we weren't expecting - but the 
interesting bit is "{error,eacces}".

This looks like the message store was attempting to delete a file and 
was prevented from doing so by the OS. This is a hard problem to recover 
from - RabbitMQ assumes that it can modify and delete any file it has 
created; it's not clear what to do if it can't.

On Windows I guess there could be a badly written virus scanner or 
backup program which is taking exclusive access to RabbitMQ's files. 
Could something like that be happening?

Cheers, Simon
