Hello again,

I am clear on this (however I wasn't before :)) But I still have a
question; if the broker never goes down, and the client is in the middle of
a transaction commit, will the broker handle it correctly? It appears to.

I will try and transfer things over to confirms, however when i detect a
duplicate I cannot know whether it has a copy on the queue or not (in the
requeue senario) so all I can do is fail.. any ideas? this is where
transactions could really help.. come on rabbit ! :)

Thanks again
