IP check question

I have a question about the contributor agreement. I used to work for the
University of Leeds writing opensource code (mostly GeoTools) but I now work
for the Pennsyvannia State University. In both cases the university claims
IP in everything I produce in thier time (and possibly the rest of the time
too). I both cases my direct boss knows/knew and approves of the code I
develop in GeoTools being LGPL.

So the question is where do I stand in getting licences signed - me, my
current employer, my old employer?
