Well, this is awkward.

Upon a bit of investigation it would seem that "x-ha-policy: nodes" 
basically does not work. The queue is crashing on startup, which is why 
you're seeing ? ? ? in mgmt, and why consumers are getting NOT_FOUND.

I would suggest that you use "x-ha-policy: all" instead for the time being.
