there seems to be an NTP bug related to leap seconds, where a leap second may be inserted at the end of *any* month.

I would have liked to send this also to the pool mailing list, but I hadn't been subscribed to this list, yet. I just have subscribed an hour or so ago, but have not yet received a confirmation email. So maybe you can forward this to the pool list.
