su was keeping a session opened, blocking the shutdown. I believe this was fixed in bug bug 966269 .. which is now included in Debian aswell.

I think this was finally fixed with:
rabbitmq-server (2.7.1-0ubuntu4) precise; urgency=low

  [ Dave Walker ]
  * debian/rabbitmq-script-wrapper: Use start-stop-daemon instead of su
    to run the commands. This also allows rabbitmq to start on the
    installer if invoke-rc.d is used with --force. (LP: #966269)

  [ Andres Rodriguez ]
  * debian/rabbitmq-server.init: Use --no-wait in initctl emit command to
    not stall apt-get installations. (LP: #968124)
