Err, well you need to set some environment variables, at least 
RABBITMQ_NODENAME and RABBITMQ_CONFIG_FILE. You'd probably also want to 
set tcp_listeners to [] in the config for the temporary shovel-hosting 
broker (otherwise it will try to open 5672 and fail).

See http://www.rabbitmq.com/clustering.html#single-machine (although you 
will not be forming the nodes into a cluster, it still applies).
