How can this happen? Shroud Tension

After replacing a bad bulkhead and stepping the mast, we finally got to sail yesterday. While sailing I heard (or felt-not really sure) a slight pop. Upon returning to the slip I noticed the lower shrouds were quite loose. The uppers were still as tight as a fiddle string. I wonder what happened. Any ideas?
