The server was getting overloaded with crappy requests again, but I couldn't see any difference between the crappy requests overloading the server and the usual crappy requests that only take about 50 milliseconds and cause no problems at all.
Except that we were also getting indexed by Google and the Google bot was tracking links to RSS feeds in places where RSS feeds don't really belong but the server will do its best to fulfil anyway.
So I blocked a couple of those. Not all of them, just a couple.
And the problem was resolved.

I did it while the main server was down after the datacenter fire, because we needed ever milligram of performance we could get. If I'd figured out this RSS problem at the time I wouldn't have needed to disable search at all.
