I'm not sure it is a new error.  I've never tried the test case
that triggers it.

My guess is that somehow the clustering algorithm is picking the
local clocksource, which is wrong, before it can be outvoted, then
canceling the -g action.  Later, when the cluster shows the problem,
ntpd just blows up.
