A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
My Fedora laptop running Chrome went 100% load during the leap second. My Fedora and RHEL server just running apache didn't.
However other RHEL and Fedora boxes reported issues depending on the software that was being run at that time.
Leaping seconds and looping servers

The funny thing was that after stopping both browsers everything went back to normal, but restarting any of them CPU load went up again. I had never seen something like this, so I took it as a divine sign telling me to go to bed and didn't look back... until the first LWN report.
My Debian stable SheevaPlug server displayed the deadlock, or something like it. That is a lot of bugs for a tiny second!
