There's no init.d for Windows and it has to be restarted every
Tuesday, so I'm not using the .bat file.  :-)

I'm running Rabbit as an NT service.  Registering Rabbit as a service
using  rabbitmq-service.bat didn't work for me-- there were problems
with escaping correctly for DOS vs. Erlang, and I ended up manually
hacking the registry to get it to run at all.  Unfortunately, it
doesn't seem to rotate logs.

It turns out that I've been using the .Net client incorrectly -- I've
been publishing (and consuming with basic.consume) using a single
IModel from multiple threads.  This is specifically pointed out as
something to be avoided in the User Guide, so it may be my fault for
crashing the server.

Even so, I'd think that it's a server bug for any client input to be
able to crash the server (other than OOM from pending messages, etc.)

I'm going to try to work up a sample project that is capable of
crashing the server.  I'll let you know.
