I've just twigged - you've set the rabbit nodename to stress haven't
you? Thus the stress_persister.log and stress_persister.log.previous are
actually the persister files. These are the very files to which the
(old) persister is writing messages which have to be written to disk.

There are many issues with the old persister, which have been regularly
discussed on this list, and many people are using the new persister
which has been in development for almost a full year now.

See eg http://old.nabble.com/Re:-Rabbit-MQ-crashing-p27042793.html to
start with.

Best wishes,
