Could you clarify when this happened? Your message has a timestamp of
07:25:25PM -0500, but I thought the leap second was to be applied at
midnight. Or maybe you're referring to a system in another timezone?
I'm just curious, and have no particular insight on the problem. I'm
expecting to see an additional second of error in the clocks of some
systems I manage via radio telemetry, but wasn't expecting anything
like you describe.
