That command line isn't quite right. Take a look at the rabbitmq-server 
script. You will notice that they disable the memory and disk alarms, as 
well as turning down the SASL log verbosity.

That doesn't explain the table loading timeouts though. What are the 
contents of your mnesia dir?

Do you get that same error when a) starting RabbitMQ with the supplied 
scripts, b) using RabbitMQ 1.2.0, c) clearing the mnesia dir prior to 
starting RabbitMQ?
