It's hardly surprising that leap seconds are never handled correctly when
all time dissemmination systems have to be manually configured each time.
The lack of automation is a recipe for mistakes, but leap seconds can't be
automated because they don't occur on a predictable schedule.

SHANNON ROCKALL MALIN HEBRIDES BAILEY: SOUTHEAST 5 OR 6, BUT OCCASIONALLY 7 AT
FIRST IN SHANNON AND BAILEY, DECREASING 4 OR 5 LATER IN HEBRIDES. ROUGH BUT
VERY ROUGH AT FIRST IN WEST, BECOMING MODERATE IN EAST. MAINLY FAIR, BUT RAIN
AT FIRST IN SHANNON. MODERATE OR GOOD.
