Try entering safe mode by turning the PS3 off, then holding power till it turns on then off again.
Wait another 5 seconds, then hold power until the PS3 double beeps. (BEEPBEEP, rather than BEEP)
Follow the on screen instructions and then when faced with the safe mode menu, choose "Rebuild Database", then repeat and choose "Restore File System".
If corruption is causing the problem, maybe this will help. A comprehensive explanation of Safe Mode and it's features is available here.

I paniced there as i read that as "Restore PS3" initially, which obviously deletes everything
I may see if i have a spare HDD and take a backup just in case - and then i'll try your suggestion later in the week. Thanks!

More news on this problem.
I tried downloading the file WITHOUT using background download, and i gor error 80710723, which looks like the connection to the download server has timed out or been dropped.
I've tried everything i could find on the net, including turning off media servers, upnp, opening specific ports and putting PS3 in the DMZ on my router. Still no joy.
I set my laptop up as a proxy server and found the actual Max Payne download link, which points to the server "zeus.dl.playstation.net". Trying to download this file manually on the laptop also causes it to stop at the same place.
This makes me think its something to do with this particular download server. Is there a cluster of them out there, with different ones being assigned to different countries or something? Is there anything i can do to try and use a different one?
Its starting to affect nearly all of my large downloads now (Darksiders, AC demo, Litle Big Planet 2, etc). I'm paying for the extra PSN service, but now cant really use it...
