Hi Robert !

Thanks for your reply. However I'm currently doing nothing in the nodedown
code, simply printing a diagnostic message. I do most of the reconnection
in the nodeup message. However that reconnection code is with node B which
doesn't have anything to do with the RabbitMQ connection at all, but a
third process.

Also, I found that recompiling everything ( my app, rebar and
 rabbitmq-server, rabbitmq-erlang-client ) with erlang v 14b04 ( as opposed
to erlang 15b ) fixed this problem for me. I dont know why though. I'll
perform some more tests on another machine and update here in about a week
or so..
