Sure enough, the Oncore 256 week leap second
bug showed up as predicted by Motorola. It was
a little different than we thought; this is how an
Oncore VP GPS receiver reported time yesterday:

11/27/2003 23:59:58
11/27/2003 23:59:59
11/29/2003 62:28:15
11/28/2003 00:00:00
11/28/2003 00:00:01

If any of you saw NTP anomalies I'd be interested
to hear about them. Presumably the invalid hour
saved the day (the time stamp would be rejected).
