Date format of custom date field changed between 5.2 and 6.1.4. Now displayed relative to current date instead for near-terma and future dates

we have a custom date field that is commonly used in various search filter result sets. Since we upgraded from 5.2.7 to 6.1.4, that field is being displayed as a number of days relative to today, i.e. "5 days" instead of the mm/dd/yyyy format. Where is that controlled? How to change it?

This widget could not be displayed.

figured out the "jira.lf.date.relativize" property appears to control this and is "true" by default. Going to change it in the jira-config.properties file to false and see if that make the difference. Haven't been able to find any documentation about this behavior changing between releases.
