[rabbitmq-discuss] queue subscription + sending to some exchange

Hi Simone,

Thanx for the suggestion! I have read that section about threading
many times but my understanding is that channels can be shared among
threads as long as they are not used concurrently. I am not doing that
and I even went ahead and created that channel in the thread that is
doing the consumption just to be on the safe side. No dice, same

What worries me in that section is this paragraph:

"Application callback handlers must not invoke blocking AMQP operations (such as
IModel.QueueDeclare, IModel.BasicCancel or IModel.BasicPublish). If
they do, the channel
will deadlock"

Now, does that mean I should not be doing what I intended to be doing
(I use IModel.BasicPublish)? I find that hard to believe.
I am taking care to open a different channel for the publishing of my
messages but I wonder is that enough?
My channel did not deadlock just looks like things got mixed up ;(
