In both cases, the response code is placed into the message, so one
should be able to discern the reason in either case. This is not
critical, just an observation.

That would seem to be the case given those response codes indicate the
queue is not accessible.

Are you talking about a patch on top? What do you think needs to be
addressed?

According to my reading of the code, it looks like the retries are for
response code AP_RESPONSE_BUSY. Why wouldn't we want to wait until the
queue was not busy anymore?

Defensive, but completely unnecessary; however, it doesn't negatively
affect the logic in the least.
