FYI:

http://tf.nist.gov/pubs/bulletin/leapsecond.htm
A positive leap second will be introduced at the end of December 2005.

So, as of 1.0 Jan 2006 UTC, the delta between GPS and UTC time will be
14 seconds.

(This is the first leap second inserted into the UTC time scale since
the end of December 1998.)
