RabbitMQ will not delete queues when they have 0 messages in them. You have
a number of options
to deal with the temporary queues explosion:

 * Clean them up manually after clients receive responses
 * Use auto-delete queues and remove consumers (they will be deleted when
the last consumer disconnects)
 * Use exclusive queues. They will be removed when the connection that
declared them closes.

The latter is probably not an option for long running systems.
