The best source I know for information on leap seconds is
That includes a link to the list of when the leap seconds have been.

I was also looking at "time" over the past couple of days, from the
"GetDateFormat" side of things (files/dos_fs.c).  I note that (Win98)
SystemTimeToFileTime etc do not include any leap seconds (i.e. file time
assumes no leap seconds).
