[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ windows service says it's started when it isn't ready

I'm using RabbitMQ 3.2.1, Erlang R16B02

The issue described in the subject causes problems for other services which 
depend on RabbitMQ

For instance if I have windows service X which has a dependency configured 
for the RabbitMQ windows service then when I start X the RabbitMQ service 
will be started first

However the RabbitMQ service reports that it's started before it's ready to 
accept connections

Hence when service X tries to start it finds it cannot connect to RabbitMQ

This is mostly a problem when the machine is restarted as the services 
which depend on RabbitMQ may fail to start

Is this a bug in RabbitMQ's windows service? Is there any way to allow 
dependencies to work?

Any other suggestion also welcome, although I really want to avoid the 
equivalent of sleeps
