I've just spoken to the Volvo dealer here who says he's never heard of them leaking and, from my description, that it's possible the injector plate is cracked - either way, it's going to have to come out and be sent off for repair.
He says he might have a replacement pump from a wrecked engine. If he can find it and I can get it cheap enough - perhaps a swap-over would be the way to go? I think I can get the pump off easy enough..
