Subject: leapfile handling broken


The date on this report is recent and the version seems correct, but the 
bug is marked FIXED. I checked anyway and everything said is wrong. The 
ntpq does report the leapsecond and TAI; but, remember the TAI cannot be 
determined until th eclock is reliably set. The TAI bit in the status 
word cannot be set until the leapsecond values have been signed. If the 
client is synchronized to a server via Autokey, this won't happen until 
the certificate trail has been hiked and the identity verified.
