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.
