Basically what happened is that I reached the mySQL 4gb database size limit,
and had to execute

	ALTER TABLE Attachments MAX_ROWS=500000 AVG_ROW_LENGTH=40000

You can check your own table health by doing:

	show table status from rt2 like 'Attachments';

Relevant Section now shows:

Avg_row_length | Data_length | Max_data_length
         28319 |  4261361424 |   1099511627775

(And yes, that's a bloody big number).
