[time-nuts] Jupiter GPS receiver

I wanted to record the output from my Rockwell Jupiter GPS receiver 
during the leap second, but got caught up in the New Years's eve events 
and did not get it done (I am new at this :-)

The receiver has been running continuously since yesterday and is still 
running (no reboot). At this moment, it is off by 1 second (running 
late) compared to the time on the PC, which I just updated from the 
Naval Observatory through the internet (using the DSClock software). Am 
I correct in saying that it should be running one second fast, not slow, 
if it had not updated?

I also have an inexpensive WWV synchronized desk clock (commercial 
product, probably made in China...), and this one is in sync with the PC.

I am planning to let the GPS receiver run a while longer to see if it 
corrects itself at some point, and if it does not, I'll reboot it.
