First, a point of semantics: I don't think leap seconds can break
php further than it already is.

Second, there is no basis for claiming that "php breaks" when you
are talking about some random library function. The language
itself is unfortunately unharmed.

Third, you have whined and complained about all the breakage for
years now, this is the first piece of concrete code you have ever
presented. Not exactly a bumper crop, but congratulations
are presumably still in order.

But I have to disappoint you, I don't think a random piece of
PHP code will convince anybody anywhere...

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
