But the stated time stamp (01/31/2008 14:20:60) is not a leap second.
So it doesn't seem to be an example of the goal that you were trying
to accomplish.

Most systems don't support leap seconds, but if you are on a system
that does support them, then leap-second time stamps should continue
to work.  (If they don't work, please report them as a bug.)  However,
invalid time stamps like 01/31/2008 14:20:60 are not supported.  Such
strings used to have an (undocumented) behavior, but the behavior was
inconsistent and the inconsistencies caused some other problems, so we
thought it better to simply reject them.
