That is expected behaviour for a 0-8 broker, at the least by some 
interpretations of the spec - if the client specifies a higher version 
number than supported by the server then negotiation proceeds with the 
server sending the version it supports.

NB: the correct protocol header for 0-9-1 is in fact AMQP 0-0-9-1, 
whereas for 0-8 it is AMQP 1-1-8-0, and for 0-9 it is AMQP 1-1-0-9. Yes, 
that is crazy.

All implementations of 0-8 actually use a 7-byte header. Hence the 
correction in 0-9-1.
