[rabbitmq-discuss] Queries regarding rabbitmq-C APIs

The status codes were introduced in v0.4.0 of the library. Given you're
also using SSL which was also introduced in v0.4.0, I'm guessing you're
using that version of the library.  I would highly encourage you to upgrade
to v0.4.1 as there are some potentially serious bugs that are fixed as of
that version.

If you're using an SSL connection, then yes, if you pull the network cable,
it is possible to get an AMQP_STATUS_SSL_ERROR.  As for the
AMQP_STATUS_TIMEOUT, a possibility is that the socket times out before the
OS informs rabbitmq-c that the socket has been closed because the network
is no longer available. If you were to re-try the same call after getting
an AMQP_STATUS_TIMEOUT what error-code is returned?
