Microcode bug!

We noticed that our Freebox (ADSL modem) hadn’t updated the time last weekend when we all set our clocks forward by one hour; it seems that the microcode uses some library elements which are open source from µClibc who you can find on the web. Evidently it’s a known bug in our box and others from Free (our ISP) that will only occur in certain leap years when other conditions are met, since it’s once every 27 years I’m not holding my breath for a microcode update to the box! As predicted, the clock corrected this weekend and should be good now until 2039!
