Paypal has a long history of being a pain in the tush about this: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient-ff&ie=UTF-8&rls=DVFC,DVFC:1970--2,DVFC:en&q=paypal+freeze+account

I have known them to do lovely things like freeze the account of a small NGO's fundraiser event because suddenly the paypal account of the NGO got too much money in donations in too short a time, and they thought that was suspicious and wouldn't allow the NGO to withdraw any until they appealed -- so the event had to be cancelled because the money to pay for the band, whatever, was in limbo.

It seems unlikely it's because of your Tor use, but we'll look for other anecdotes that might lead us to believe this to be the case.
