One of both disks in the RAID1 setup was broken (completely unresponsive). 
We had to shut down the system to have the hosting facility replace it.

During the resync of the disks we encountered I/O errors on the second 
disk as well, which delayed recovery but thanks to a nice blog-post 
(http://www.sj-vs.net/forcing-a-hard-disk-to-reallocate-bad-sectors/) we 
could finish the resync during the weekend and bring the system back.

We will have to shut down the system again to get the second disk 
replaced eventually though :-/ Guess we've been lucky the second disk was 
recoverably to some point though.

PS Thanks to Bert de Bruijn for covering during my absence (family duty).
