Wrong ;-)  It is already fixed with the locale dependent date acceptance
patterns recently implemented. Anyway, this is not really related to the
"export as shown" option that is general to all number formats.

Actually no. In en_US locale it is expected that the input of 4/2
results in 04/02/12, of course that is not desired in other locales that
use a different date separator. What the fix mentioned is about. For
