My 5D2 froze today.

I was on a photo shoot today with a 580 flash attached when the camera just stopped taking pictures. I removed and re-inserted the battery, lens and flash unit to no avail. I cleaned all accessible contacts. The rear display continued to operate correctly through out, but nothing happened when I pressed the shutter. I then tried using the camera in live view mode and it seemed to start up again. After a few shots in this mode I returned to normal operation and the camera commenced to work correctly. It was an indoor shoot, and at normal temperatures. The camera wasn't knocked or dropped. The picture count has just tripped over to 10000 pics.
Any Ideas?
