It is released once the message has been accepted from all the queues it 
is enqueued on.

take a look at the queues with qpid-tool. if they are gone, close 
qpidtool and the mem is
released. if the process is still blotted that is linux lazy release. 
These can be seen from when
tc_consolidate is being called.
