It looks like the basic Erlang process distribution code fails to 

Try running (as an ordinary user)
   erl -sname test
and then
   sudo -u rabbitmq -H erl -sname test
and finally
   sudo -H erl -sname test

In each case you should get an Erlang prompt of the form 
"(test@<yourhostname>)1>", which you can exit with C-c C-c. If you get 
an error or something different instead, please post it.
