Had a leap happen here on the 30th.  My stratum 1 source is a CDMA
timekeeper, I'll ping the operator of it and see if he knows anything or if
it logged anything.  It's probably not isolated at all since all my S2
machines have some diversity in alternate time sources but still took the
leap second.
