Date format issue with Due Date

I verified that all date formats ( advanced settings and look and feel ) are the same and correct.

MM/dd/yyyy and %m%d%Y as required.

If I enter 6/6/14 in the Due Date field, it's saved and displayed as 06/06/0014.

If I enter 6/6/2014 in the Due Date field, it's saved and displayed as 06/06/2014.

If I use the Date Picker dialog, the correct date ( 06/06/2014 ) is saved and displayed.

I have a user who doesn't use the date picker and forgets to enter the entire year when adding Due Dates to issues. I've had no luck finding a solution for this.

I guess I could change the date formats to yy instead of yyyy, but I hate to change the system for 1 user.......

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Heh - Atlassian says this is "Not a Bug" https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-36354 

To accommodate the .0001-chance edge case of archaeologists using Jira, if you enter "14" for the year, it gets parsed to the year 14 A.D.
