[rabbitmq-discuss] Stopping

Have noticed that even when RabbitMQ is stopped, there's an erlang server
process that keeps going and the only way to stop it seems to be to kill it.

Arguably speaking, if the service is started by Rabbit, it should be stopped
by Rabbit, no? ... Or is the same instance potentially used by other Erlang
