I successfully replicated the above mentioned bug on a windows 7 pc
and i followed some simple steps to do so
1)open a new open office text document(it has an .ODT extension)
2)now, in this document click on insert>fields>date
3)now click on date field and change the format to YYYY-MM-DD (1991-12-31 is
shown in the options select it).
4)save and close the file.
5)now click on the open office shortcut.then click Tools>options>Language
settings>Languages and then change the locale setting to "English(canada)".
6)now open the previously edited document.then we find its contents in
DD/MM/YYYY format(contradicting the expected format of YYYY-MM-DD).

Additional Information:
the contents in the file remained the same when the locale setting is changed
to Hindi,Telugu,German,etc..
