Your RabbitMQ installation appears to have problems reading the 
snapshot/log file for the persistent message store. Under debian that 
file normally lives at /var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/rabbit/persister.LOG. 
Please check that the file exists, is readable and writable by the user 
account under which RabbitMQ gets started (normally 'rabbitmq' under 
Debian), and is non-empty.

If the file isn't too large and your persistent messages do not contain 
any sensitive data then feel free to attach the file.

If you don't mind losing the persistent messages then removing the file 
and restarting RabbitMQ should get you going again.

Re persistent exchanges - these do not affect the persistent message 
store, so I don't think they are the source of the problem.
