I experienced something weird on my developpement server.
RabbitMQ don't start and block my OS booting process, 

I'm using Debian Sqeeze and deb paquet of RabbitMQ server, not Debian 

I mount /var/log on tmpfs and directory is fresh each time I start my 
This is the problem, rabbitmq starting script (in 
/etc/init.d/rabbitmq-server) assume that dir /var/log/rabbitmq exists but 
in my case it doesn't.

I added on top of the srcipt after variable declaration a test if dir 
exists and if not I create it.
With this patch, RabbitMQ don't failed anymore.

I guess this test could be added for everyone.
