Unfortunately no. To be honest, everything works fine on small loads. We are
using that branch for very large loads where the number of tasks don't fit
into memory. So while the problem itself may not be specific to this branch,
I haven't seen this problem in the default branch because the default can't
handle the loads we're generating.

12B-4 is what we're building from source. What benefits would we get from
upgrading to 13B03?

Btw, are there any special rabbitmq/erlang commands or tools we can run to
verify that rabbimq is healthy beyond running rabbitmqctl and looking at
logs? I find the logs rather cryptic sometimes.
