Urgh, I had that on one of my Paphs earlier this spring. Nasty stuff kept spreading even after a couple of applications of Phyton 27. In the end I used Dragons Blood and that seems to have stopped it now, thankfully.
I am also fighting something similar with my paphs.
I would get some healthy new growth and all of a sudden the leaves turn into mushy eggplant purple.
I have been treating with physan 20 and cutting off the affected leaves but I am afraid I might run out of healthy tissue before long and the plants would not survive.

I agree with Clint Bacterial. When you break the leaf does it have a bad smell?
