This also happened to me and at least one other person. In my case it
was because of trojan activity on IRC. I was using the default Tor exit
policy at that time, which, as it turns out, isn't restrictive enough.
XS4ALL told me that it's OK to run a non-exit node, which I'm running
now. There's a number of other non-exit nodes in XS4LL IP space,
including the node of one of the XS4ALL founders, so running a non-exit
node seems to be fine.
