Pretty certain. As I said earlier it's a pretty basic client that has
    string broker = "localhost:5672";
    string connectionOptions = "{reconnect: true}";

When I looked at the broker trace it was talking about fadams@QPID, 
fadams is the name of the account that I'm using to run the client, but 
I've never explicitly used fadams anywhere as a qpid username so 
*something* is picking the account name.

Possibly, I'm running Ubuntu - perhaps it's got some subtly different 
options. I guess it's no big deal now as I seem to have got things 
working generally.

I still think anything to do with security is voodoo magic though, it's 
some sort of miracle that I've made it this far :-D

So now I've got another slightly off the wall question :-) So I've got 
an acl set up whereby I can have anonymous@QPID to only have publish 
rights and named users to subscribe.

What I'd quite like to be able to do is to log, but not deny if a queue 
is created that's not one of a named set. I'm suspecting that I can't do 
that with acl and I might have to write a QMF client to do that.

Incidentally, is it possible to get the broker to re-read an acl. I've 
been restarting the broker, but that's not ideal in a live environment.
