I can confirm this.

This bug should be fixed in a new version upload to natty, and evtl. we could SRU a patch for Maverick and Lucid.

What's bothering me (which may be unrelated) is my laptop (Maverick) will not reboot unless i first stop rabbitmq-server manually. I do not experience this on my desktop Maverick machine.

Stop it from starting?

@Clint, yeah that works for me, but since I still have it installed (deliberately), I got this error:

sudo update-rc.d rabbitmq-server remove
update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/rabbitmq-server exists during rc.d purge (use -f to force)

And needed to run:

↪ sudo update-rc.d -f rabbitmq-server remove
 Removing any system startup links for /etc/init.d/rabbitmq-server ...
