Messages are not being redelivered correctly

                 Key: GERONIMO-4153
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: ActiveMQ
    Affects Versions: 2.1.1, 2.1
         Environment: Geronimo 2.1.1, Windows XP SP3. Java 1.6_0_6
            Reporter: Mohammed Imran

I am experiencing problems with redelivery of messages in activemq/geronimo it seems to not
redeliver the message when a system exception occurs. I know that ActiveMQ has a max redelivery
count, however the messages seem to stop being processed after 1-2 attempts. I am not getting
anywhere near the max redelivery count.

I enclose a very simple example. This ear simple has 1 MDB which will automatically throw
an EJBException. (In the source code I have configured it to use ActiveMQ default queues and
connection factory this was only done so you can quickly see what happens without setting
up your own queue and connection factory. I also enclose a runnable class which will send
a message to the queue.)

The expected result should be MDB retires 5/10/xxx amount of times whatever the max redelivery
count is set to and then stops redelivering the message. However as I have said earlier on
I am not getting this, seems to only retry once.

package test;

import javax.ejb.*;
import javax.jms.MessageListener;
import javax.jms.Message;

@MessageDriven(activationConfig = {
            propertyName = "destinationType",
            propertyValue = "javax.jms.Queue"),
            propertyName = "destination",
            propertyValue = TestMDBBean.QUEUE_NAME)
            propertyName = "acknowledgeMode",
            propertyValue = "Auto-acknowledge")
public class TestMDBBean implements MessageListener {
    public static final String QUEUE_NAME = "SendReceiveQueue";//"ErrorQueue";;
    public void onMessage(Message message) {
        System.err.println("This is a test");
        throw new EJBException("This is a lovely test");
