  TAI64N labels represent TAI time, which is linear; when you need a
leap second table is when you want to convert TAI labels to UTC or
local time.

  My guess is that lnav just prints the TAI time as if it were UTC,
which indeed will print a time that, in 2020, is too high by 27 seconds.
If that is the case, it's a bug that would be worth reporting to lnav.
