I have tried this again on a clean host, installing the same packages.  I did not encounter the same problem.  I am not sure how the root chown'd directory happened, but I think we will all agree it was my fault.

For what it's worth, when I was testing with this:

NODENAME=bunny at

The server would not start:

# service rabbitmq onestart
Warning: PID file not written; -detached was passed.
Error: unable to connect to node 'bunny at': nodedown


attempted to contact: ['bunny at']

bunny at
  * bunny seems not to be running at all
  * other nodes on [rabbitmqctl26754]

current node details:
- node name: rabbitmqctl26754 at testing
- home dir: /var/db/rabbitmq
- cookie hash: oGo1EYRWNeUldVp0J/8vcw==

However, when I added an entry for testing in /etc/hosts and switched to:

NODENAME=bunny at testing

... the server would start.
