This is interesting.  So I resent the large message with
'delivery-mode' of '1' instead of '2' (which should make it NOT
persistent -- right?).  RabbitMQ still dies.

I also tried sending the message via STOMP without specifying any type
of 'delivery-mode' (because I think the default is to mark the message
as non-persistent).  Even in that scenario, RabbitMQ still dies.

I don't think this is just a persister problem... unless the persister
is involved in handling non-persistent messages on durable queues.
