Could be an Erlang scheduler thing. Give the latest Erlang release a 
try, since multi-core scheduling is definitely an area that has 
undergone considerable changes in recent releases.

Also, try running

  rabbitmqctl eval 'erlang:statistics(run_queue).'

if this is >0 then there are runnable processes waiting for execution, 
which would indicate some scheduler anomaly.
