    *                      that point in time will need to account *
    *                      for this extra leap second when they    *
    *                      are being converted from internal to    *

    ****************************************************************

    The new leap second added at the end of June 30th 2015 needs to
    be accounted in time and time stamp conversions.
    

Problem conclusion

    time and time stamp conversions.
