Thanks.  I wonder how long it would have taken me to find that.

I assume the leap second tangle is so avoid breaking some very old test cases 
by bumping them into the current epoch.

The code I was expecting doesn't know anything about leaps.

It would be close to:
  while (t < PIVOT) t += 1024*7*86400

Where PIVOT would be the release date in seconds.


Are there any GPS units old enough to need to get bumped twice?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
