Thanks for the heads up on that one.  Harlan: Should we file a bug to track 

I think we can catch some of that with logic similar to the GPS week rollover 
fixes.  That is we compile a constant into the code and either reject the 
time or fix it up if it used an earlier leap second offset.  The fix-it 
approach only works until another leap second is added, but we might be able 
to get a recent offset from the file system.

Does NMEA provide a standard way to get the number of leap seconds?  I don't 
think so, but I might have missed it.  How many NMEA devices have their own 

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
