Looks like the first three lines are most interesting:

Fri Sep 28 20:38:32 2012
Slogan: eheap_alloc: Cannot allocate 747325720 bytes of memory (of type "heap").
System version: Erlang R13B03 (erts-5.7.4) [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [rq:4] [async-threads:30] [hipe] [kernel-poll:true]
Compiled: Fri Sep 24 19:15:42 2010

Nothing else should be using a lot of memory, but I guess this points to a non-rabbit/erlang problem unless there have been memory leaks fixed since R13B03 + 2.8.6?

I'm using the stock Ubuntu (11.04) packages for Erlang, and the debs from the Rabbit site.
