I was running openntpd and since the leap second switched to ntp.

Interestingly, I just noticed that I stopped receiving mail from
misc@openbsd.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?
