Hi Tim,

Indeed, now that I look at it (I'm not the author of the test case, just
working on that bug) the syntax does look somewhat *doubtful*.

Let me run another set of tests to verify all this before bringing some
more noise to this list.

If anything gets confirmed, I will have rabbitmqctl status, rabbitmqctl
report handy.

thanks for your help,

Kind regards,
