I set a default consumer so haven't seen this error message again and haven't seen any negative side effects. Now when I go outside a send window, it will cancel the consumer and messages will stack up in the queue until the next send window, at which time the consumer will be reattached and messages will start flowing again.

I may take the default consumer off again and see if I can break it...
