Leap year freezes digital music player

Microsoft's Zune digital music player froze on December 31, 2008. The problem was identified in the device's internal clock driver and how it handles a leap year, such as 2008. The problem affected only the 30-gigabyte model, of which 1.2 million have been sold.
