Yes the issue is in the stringToDate method as it look through the months to replace the month
name with the month number in these lines:

{code}
		for (var i:int = 0; i < noMonths; i++) {
			valueString = valueString.replace(monthNames[i], (i+1).toString());
			valueString = valueString.replace(monthNames[i].substr(0,3), (i+1).toString());
		}
{code}

And yes it's because both June and July first 3 letters are "Jui" in French.

>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: mx: DateField
>    Affects Versions: Apache Flex 4.15.0
>         Environment: Windows 7
>            Reporter: Peter Marcoen
>            Assignee: Justin Mclean

> h4. Steps to reproduce:
> 1. Create a new project
> 2. Set the compiler arguments to "-locale fr_FR"
> 3. Add the following line to the main application:
> {code:xml}
> <mx:DateField selectedDate="{new Date(2016, 6, 4, 13)}"/>
> {code}
> 4. Run the application and click on the calendar icon
> h4. Expected result:
> The selected date should be the 4th of JULY, which it is if you set the locale to "en_US"
> h4. Actual result:
> The selected date is the 4th of JUNE
> h4. Possible reason:
> Because the abbreviation of june and july is the same in French ("Jui"), the popup probably
finds the first month who's abbreviated name matches the selected abbreviated name and thus
incorrectly sets the month to June
