RabbitMQ fails on new Ubuntu 18.04 install due to hostname issue

Issue #649 resolved

Not sure if it is specific to Ubuntu as a LXD container, but by default the /etc/hosts file has the localhost entry but not the hostname entry. For some reason, without it RabbitMQ will refuse to start.

/etc/hosts needs to be updated to read:

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 nameofmyserver
