I talked to the qpid folks about this today.  It's a bug one way or another.
They fixed one that may be causing this and there will be new RPMs out 
hopefully today.  If that doesn't do it it may have something to do with
how QMF is doing things.  If you still see this after the RPM upgrade
let me know.  I'll be trying it out too.  Thanks!
