accessing public message queues

Hello,
I am using message queues in C# asp.net 1.1.  I create a public message queue and on subsequent execution of the code, I check if the queue exists. If it does, I don't want to create it again. The queue gets created successfully, but the problem is MessageQueue.Exists method or GetPublicQueuesByMachine method can't find this queue once it is created, so the control goes to the 'create' statement again and it fails by giving this error:

System.Messaging.MessageQueueException: Queue with the specified path name is already registered in the DS.

The GetPublicQueuesByMachine method does't find this queue and gives the Unhandled Execution Error and MessageQueueException with message text as NULL.

But GetPrivateQueuesByMachine method works fine and retrieves all private queues. Another thing is, if the same code is run in a Windows Application, it works fine and retrieves the public queue.
So why does it not find the PUBLIC queue in a WEB application?  here is my code. Please help.

if (!MessageQueue.Exists(".\\requestq"))                        //???
{
   MessageQueue requestq = MessageQueue.Create(".\\requestq");
}

MessageQueue[] mqlist = null;
try
{
   mqlist = MessageQueue.GetPublicQueuesByMachine(".");         //???
}
catch (MessageQueueException ex)
{
   string mesg = ex.Message;
}

According to this article

   http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.messaging.messagequeue.exists.aspx

you seem to have everything correct, but with ASP.NET it may be a problem with authentication.  If you allow anonymous access to the web site, a special user with limited access is used to access external resources, such as message queues.

Thanks Bob. How could that be done?
(I am using forms authentication if it has any relevance.)

One idea would be to use impersonation:

Private queues are serving the purpose for the time being.
I will look into public queues soon.
