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.
