AMQP permits consumers to share queues. Regardless of what exchange 
these queues are bound to.

However, as Simon explained, consumers can request exclusive access to a 
queue, preventing sharing of the queue with other consumers. The error 
message you get from qpid indicates that the client library is doing 
just that. I suggest you ask the qpid folks how to change that behaviour.
