[SalesForce] “Your organization has been disabled” when multi-currency is enabled

I was just about to access a custom Visualforce page in my managed package dev org when Salesforce returned the message:

Your organization has been disabled
Salesforce.com has disabled access to the system for your company. Please contact support@salesforce.com for more information about this error.

This was most concerning, as I need that Org to release the managed package for a client who wouldn't be impressed while I tried to resolve the issue with support.

Any attempt to reconnect to the org gave the same message. It appeared to resolve itself about 5 minutes later while I was writing an email to support.

Does anyone know what might have caused the message?

Mystery solved. I had requested the Multi-currency support be enabled in my Org several days ago.

Implications of Enabling Multiple Currencies
Work with your salesforce.com representative to determine the best time for multi-currency enablement. The enablement process temporarily locks your organization, preventing any integration processing and user logins. The lockout duration depends on the data space used by your organization. Source

Just to be clear. This wasn't Salesforce's fault. They were doing exactly what I asked them to do and I had forgotten the implications that I agreed to beforehand in the support case.
