This is related to a discussion I had with Andy Taylor, when he was helping me with clustering.
Apparently, the broker does not load balance messages if they miss the application properties.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Configure a 3-node A-MQ 7.0.0 cluster
2. Send a message without any application properties (ie.: such as the ones sent by the messaging performance tool):
./mpt-sender perf -b amqp://host:5672/somequeue --log-level=debug -c 99 -p 1 -s 128 -N
Expected result: approximately 33 messages would be sent to each node on the cluster.
Actual result: all the messages (99) are retained on the node to which they are sent.
Work-around: send messages w/ application properties set (in this case, the messages are balanced among the nodes)
