    I'm not all that versed in ntp-ish, but it appears that the leap
    second insertion should be propagated through the ntp protocol.
    Whether the leap second in question came from a ntp server giving out
    wrong data or from a misinterpretation or bug in ntpd is of course
    hard to say, but either way turning the clock back is unlikely to
    reconstruct the circumstances. An interesting exercise might be to
    code up a small program to call adjtimex with timex.status |= STA_INS,
    to see if this can trigger the problem. (The bogus leap second might
    be a red herring entirely, of course...)
