Thanks for the quick and helpful reply. That fixes my issue. We will
upgrade to the current release as soon as we can, but time is a little
short now.

Congratulations again on the Spring acquisition. Rabbitmq is by far
the highest quality product and support of all the OSS projects we
employ, and we use a fare number.

Thanks again,
