I glanced at the .leap.seconds object and noticed that it has not been
updated for the most recent leap second that occurred 2005 December 31,
23h 59m 60s. See the IERS bulletin here:

Moreover, after a more careful glance at the .leap.seconds object, I
noticed that there are two incorrect entries. First, there was not a
leap second on 1986 June 30, and second there was a leap second that was
omitted on 1982 June 30.

For a list of past offsets see this IERS table:
