Hi again.
I did some more investigation into this, and it seems that whenever you pick a date after
the end of october, when daylight savings time switches, the date picker is ok.
All very confusing.
Should i be setting my default timezone to be GMT or a different one, like Europe/London?

I still strongly suspect this is a daylight savings time issue,
or at least a time zone issue, where one part of the system is
interpreting the date with one time zone, and another part
of the system is doing so with a different time zone.
Because of how java.util.Date is misdesigned, that means
that something entered as midnight of 16/09/2007 can
end up as 23:00 of 15/09/2007 when re-displayed.
