Well, if you really *completely run out* of disk space or memory then
yes, whichever node that is happening on will crash. But that's why we
have alarms in place that block publishing across the entire cluster
when disk space or memory are getting low - before rabbit is in danger
of crashing.

No, assuming you follow the advise from http://www.rabbitmq.com/memory.html
other design considerations permitting, it is advisable to only use 
individual AMQP connections for either producing or consuming.
