Hey Alexis,

I think what's happening here is that I create a lot of reply queues for
quite transient producers. But I don't close the channel after I'm finished
and so I guess the auto-delete reply queue isn't being cleaned up. We've
done a lot of refactoring of our RabbitMQ code recently and I think the
call to close got lost. I'm going to put it back in and do some more
testing to see what happens.
