I'm evaluating RabbitMQ as a replacement for our JMS code but I've run into
some slightly odd behaviour.

I've managed to replicate it in a simple example. So:

1. Run the HelloClient RabbitMQ example modified slightly so that it sends
20 messages instead of 1.
2. Run the HelloServer example but with a slight change to the code. Add a
Thread.sleep(10*1000) before the return in handleStringCall().
3. Now run a normal HelloServer example, without any sleep.
What I noticed here is that the normal example doesn't run at full speed.
It looks like the slow server is slowing down the normal one.
5. Kill the slow server (the one with the sleep) and the normal HelloServer
now runs at full speed and finishes the rest of the messages within the

Any help would be great.
