This tends to happen after a filesystem corruption is detected or a failure to
perform a disk read or write. Have you checked kernel messages with dmesg?
Checked the drive /var is on with smartctl -a? I have never heard of a
partition going read-only out of the blue, but have seen this happen numerous
times when the disk was giving read and/or write errors, or a shared-storage
cluster mounting the same physical disk from separate nodes...
