Thanos for the replies, especially the link to Sheldon's web pages. I'mpretty sure it's rim heat. Three out of four occurred on steep descents (Jeux-Plane, Stelvio, Fadaia). I've tightened up the drum brake pumping the brakes more than holding firm. It's unnerving knowing it can happen but it's good to now know why.
