Wow, that's a lot of RAM. I assume it's a 64-bit installation and you're
running a 64-bit erlang? You say it crashes sometime after 200k msgs,
but what are the message sizes?

Basically, it looked to me like that log file was documenting Rabbit
failing to start up. I'm also interested in the log entries when it
crashes. So, the next time you get it to crash because it's been sent
200k+ msgs, before restarting it, if you could take a copy of the
rabbit.log and the rabbit-sasl.log, I'd be interested in seeing them.
