Can you post some code that demonstrates this? With the Java client, if you use basicConsume
and there are messages in the queue, you will start getting deliveries immediately (basic.qos and other
consumers on the same channel may affect this, though).

Using basic.get after basic.consume makes no sense. If you want to use basic.get, there is no need to
use basic.consume.
