the file backing it - what was that stored on?

It was a raw image created with dd and stored on an SSD (ext4).
Some of the virtual machines were on traditional hard disks instead (ext4).

Only the running virtual machines got damaged, the main filesystems are perfect.

What it was that did the scribbling

Rebooting. A simple, stupid reboot after upgrading Xen. While rebooting the system I got some kind of kernel panic and I had to use magic sysrq keys (remount read-only, sync, reboot).
