I was running openntpd and since the leap second switched to ntp.
Interestingly, I just noticed that I stopped receiving mail from
firstname.lastname@example.org around the time of the leap second. I haven't looked
into why yet.
It seems that some of us had problems around the leap second, while some
of us didn't. Unfortunatly, both ntp and openntpd both use
/usr/sbin/ntpd (different binary of course).
I wonder if there is correlation between those of us who had a problem
and those of us who were running openntpd at the time?
