I had the debug-log activated, but was unable to find anything useful.
Debugging with gdb was not an option, strace didn't help.

Meanwhile, the problem disappeared as suddenly as it appeared, so I
still suppose there was an issue with the signatures which might have
been introduced last Thursday and has now been resolved.

Is there a way to get a signature-set of Monday for example? I don't
keep local copies yet, but I guess I should keep a history of signatures
so I can investigate future issues.
