Could it be that the pauses caused by the debugger in turn caused the
heartbeat mechanism to fire, terminating the connection at the server-side?

You can do a passive declare; though this will cause the channel to
close if the queue does not exist. Alternatively, you may not need to
check: queue.declare is idempotent, and you can simply issue the
queue.declare again if you are in doubt.
