I found a similar error (production version of AMQ 4.1.1, sun jdk 1.5,
Debian etch) when I first attempted to set up AMQ in a network of
brokers (store and forward config).

What I found was that if you have two (or more) brokers and both define
the same destinations in activemq.xml, this occurs.

        <topic physicalName="MyTopic1" />
        <topic physicalName="MyTopic2" />

What I expected was that I could define the same topics, explicitly, for
all brokers in the network and store and forward would work correctly.
Commenting out the <destinations/> block allowed everything to come up.
The topics were auto-created the first time a message was sent to them.

The error is related to the queues that AMQ uses to bridge between the
brokers, if I remember correctly. When AMQ makes connections between two
brokers, it creates subscriptions for the network connectors (hence the

My impetus for explicitly defining the destinations was that I thought
this was the only way I could lock down privileges to them. I never
found a solution to locking them down in a store and forward network.

Hope that helps. (Has anyone else seen this behavior? Is this normal?)
