   It seems at times the shutdown button on the web console doesn't 
cause a shutdown.

My suggestion is to add it as a command to 'apollo-broker' similar to 
run so it can be scripted.

Also, I notice in my app, that after 17k messages or so, my consumers 
stop receiving messages.

The connection.is_connected() test is true though.

The apollo.log shows

2011-08-19 06:13:47,744 | INFO  | broker startup is taking a long time 
(30553 seconds). Waiting on start virtual-host: gridwave | console | 


When I restart my app and re-connect to the still running broker, 
messages come through.

Any ideas?

Thank you!
