Hmm..  in our case, we're only sending about 10-20 messages per
minute, so the volume isn't very high.

The empty topics are hanging around for far longer than 1 minute.
I see some that are many hours old before I see them getting marked
dead (4+ hours).  All our messages are already sent volatile
so they're emtpy almost immediately.

Thank you for the examples - I'll give them a try shortly and
investigate further.
