Thanks. Setting the local-username to a valid username fixed the 
problem. But, I'm still confused.

I have RabbitMQ configured to use the auth_mechanism_ssl plugin. So, why 
do I have to set the local-username at all? I expected that by setting 
the client ssl-keys in the federation URI, federation would pull the 
username out of the SSL key and use that to authenticate. This works for 
normal clients connecting via SSL. Why doesn't this work for federation
