For what it's worth, killing epmd and removing /var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia/*
changed nothing. The module is still available. However, purging and
reinstalling rabbitmq, did the trick :)

code:delete/1 unloads the module (is_loaded returns false), but any call of
the functions from that module results in it being loaded again. So, does
Erlang cache the content of the loaded modules?  How does it get reloaded
when the files are removed?
