Is that still a problem? If so, do you have any details. I don't know of
any leap-second bugs that haven't been fixed.
The usual most-recent problem is that GPS now announces the pending leap many
months in advance and some of the drivers didn't have a June/December filter.
So the system would do bogus leaps at the end of all the months between the
start-of-announce and the right one.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
