It may have been related to the traffic from those exit nodes that
Google was seeing *at* *that* *time*.  There was a time when Google's
search engine would sometimes tell me something along the lines of "we
think you are a virus" that was definitely time/exit-node dependent. 
(Now it is very rare that exiting from Tor does not cause me problems
with Google's search.)
