The real harm is done by the sun on the frosty potatoe leaves. It burns them badly as can be seen in the photos. We got caught by a frost a few weeks back. In the morning I put on the covers I usually place on the spuds at night. This stopped the direct sunlight from burning the leaves.

Why not leave them a few more weeks to die down and then clear the dead leaves away.

As they are at their best for only 3/4 years it is a pity to miss out on year 1. The crop will be small but tasty.

As was stated onanother rhubarb thread the greates threat to rhubarb is over picking. JH you are lucky that one came back at all. Snails are also a problem as the leaves touch the ground. Nothing for it but pellets spread around and about your crowns, but not over them. i have placed beer traps for the said same critters among my cabbages. Seems they like a tipple or two.

Without a picture it's hard to know but probably slugs.
