How are you shutting down Rabbit? - if you're hard killing it then the
messages will be sitting in some buffer somewhere waiting to go to disk
and will never make it. If you shutdown Rabbit nicely, using the various
scripts, then all such buffers should be flushed.

Publishing persistent messages to durable queues without using
transactions gives no guarantees of when messages will be written to
