Hmm, this is maybe not very well documented. The rabbitmq_tracing plugin 
needs a user to use to publish the messages that it uses internally. If 
you haven't told it otherwise, it will use "guest". If "guest" won't 
work, you'll need to add something like:

{rabbitmq_tracing, [{username, <<"my-user">>}]},

to your config.
