[time-nuts] GPS leap second pending (TBolt/Heather)

Nope,  it's not an error or a problem.  
That column of data is showing a decode of the 16 status bits that the Tbolt is providing.    The Trimble docs say that bit is a "Leap Pending" bit,  so that is what Heather displays.   It would be wrong to try and mask/adjust the report of the receiver's status word.
Lady Heather is a monitor and display program for Trimble timing receivers.  It shows the values that the receiver is reporting (usually to the precision that the receiver provides...  think that micro-degree temperature value is really that accurate?  I have a lovely bridge that you might want to purchase)   But that's what the receiver is sending,  so that's what gets displayed.

Note that this is not a GPS problem, nor a Trimble problem. It's just a problem with user written software.
