I haven't looked at the samples in a long time, and you didn't provide
any of your code.  I find it odd that you would send a response using
the same queue name.  Usually you would send the response message back
to the sender directly using the sender's reply address.  This is the
code I use to respond to a sender:

// Get sender address
var replyAddress = PublicationAddress.Parse(request.BasicProperties.ReplyTo);

// Don't remember if this is necessary, but it was in my code
if (replyAddress == null)
  replyAddress = new PublicationAddress(
    ExchangeType.Direct, "", request.BasicProperties.ReplyTo);

// Reply to sender
model.BasicPublish(replyAddress, basicProperties, data);
