Could you please say more?

How are you working around it?

Vendor?  Model?  Can you take the cover off (or peer in through the vents) 
and see what type of GPS receiver they are using?

I assume the gear is recent or the problem would have been discovered the 
last time we had a leap second.  Have you contacted the vendor?  Have they 
confirmed the problem?  Any estimate on when they will ship new firmware?

Has anybody else noticed the problem?  (I tried google news and NANOG but 
didn't find anything.)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
