[rabbitmq-discuss] [Bug] Memory leak in 3.1.3 (Ubuntu)

Well there's a good reason why that leaks I think. When is the test case ever actually getting into the ./queue_receive bit!? Isn't that like doing `while true; do echo "hi"; done; echo "done"` - you never arrive at "done" do you.

Even if you were calling the receive script in the loop, that's creating a new consumer and not removing it, so the memory use for all those connections will just keep going up since they're never being closed.

Have I missed something? It really looks like this is just a badly formed test case to me.
