Since nobody else mentioned this in in thread: when you mark a queue as 
exclusive, we disable mirroring (and durability) as of 3.2.0. This is 
because when the queue's node goes down the connection will be closed 
anyway, so we have to delete the queue. Therefore there's no point in it 
being durable or mirrored.

As previously mentioned in the thread though, I think you were looking 
for autodelete semantics. And maybe didn't need miroring at all :-)

Cheers, Simon
