A couple of people have privately replied to me that the likely cause
of this is something called "sobig.f", which seems to be heavily
disrupting things all over the place.

I assume that this is one of the spate of "clients" of Microsoft Virus
Gateway, which have become active recently. Being completely detached
from the MS world, I have remained, mostly, blissfully unaware of
these things.
