That's an interesting thought. You could

1) move the persister log out of the way (rabbit_persister.LOG*)
2) delete the mnesia dir
3) start rabbit (and thus get a fresh mnesia dir and persister log)
4) recreate the durable exchanges/queues/bindings
5) stop rabbit
7) replace the new persister log with the old one
8) restart rabbit

Might work. Haven't tried it though.
