Thanks for the pointer, that may have been it!

I don't understand the complicated interactions that
make a leap second confuse a computer more than the
RTC running slow confuses it, but this issue did indeed
go away after a reboot (and I'm pretty sure I didn't
see the problem till after midnight UTC which is when
the leap second would have happened).

They really ought to switch to a new version of NTP
protocol that is just like the old one, but works from
TAI and sends a database of leap second info around as
well so computers can translate TAI into UTC.
