✘-g broken?

Yo All!

I was just tracking down an oddity on a RasPi.  Not sure the
exact order in the chain of events.  But now ntpd keeps crashing.

Somehow the system time got set to 2134.  That messed up the GPS
week computation in gpsd, so gpsd PPS, my 'prefer' source, is
telling ntpd it is now 2134, but all my other sources say 2108.  then
ntpd crashes.  Even with the -g option.

I start ntpd this way:

# ntpd -Ng

Here is the log:

12-21T17:28:40 ntpd[6085]: PROTO: 0017 07 panic_stop +579076096 s; set clock manually within 1000 s.
12-21T17:28:40 ntpd[6085]: CLOCK: Panic: offset too big: 579076096.001

I just pulled git head, same thing.  So somehow -g got broken?
