Confirmed. Working here too with leapsecond files and the latest development

I always get flash=800 reported when the association isn't synchronized.

I also noticed that the poll interval isn't reset when rekeying occurs. This
means that - depending on the current poll interval - it may take a very long
time (eg. 3-7 cyles with pi=1024 -> ~1-2h) until both peers have
resynchronized. Is this intended?
