Yes, for queues marked as durable and messages contained in them that 
are marked as persistent.

Do you know why your systems are running out of memory? It certainly 
shouldn't be due to rabbit, if you have the memory thresholds configured

It should be pretty nuke proof. Matthew may be able to elaborate once 
he's back from holiday next week.

You certainly shouldn't be losing entire queues, and if you do I would 
at the very least expect there to be some errors in the logs. Is there 
nothing of interest in the rabbit.log and rabbit-sasl.log?
