Yeah, I typically wait until the management console reports all messages
delivered to all queues, so I'm not just automating running these scripts
in a row. I've been assuming that if the management console reports
messages are delivered, then this scenario doesn't apply.

Well, when I've been running this, I updated my scripts to do queue
deletion linearly (without any shell level parallelism), as should be seen
in the updated setup script. In this situation, I'm not seeing it throw a
bunch of obvious errors, but when I go to create the new message queues,
they show up with some subset of the original messages in them.
