I had a hard crash of my lenny system precisely when the leap second was

I don't know, but I forgot about the leap second thing.  It may explain
why my mirror (ftp3.nrc.ca) stopped working about 7 pm Eastern.  I'm
trying with another mirror now and having troubles.

See if your ISP has a timeserver.  For example, mine is ntp.cox.net.
