A leak developped in the potable water tank. The water gathered at the bottom of the fuselage and got frozen. Leak discovered when water got thawed...Cleaning, repairs and checks would take too much time and crew went out of hours inside CDG curfew.
Decision was made to give the crew min rest during the time the repairs would take.
Q.E.D.
