How did you "move" the queue between nodes? That is not a feature that 
is supported in RabbitMQ (yet).

I suppose that while node A is down a client may connect to node B and 
declare a queue with the same name. I am actually not sure what happens 
in that case, and how it affects re-queueing of persisted messages when 
node A subsequently recovers. So some test scenarios along these lines 
and observations of current behaviour would be very much appreciated.
