Copying a date/time value from one date/time field to another date/time field causes the second field to display as "Error". Example code is:

Call Shell.Item.GetFieldValue("DATE_FIELD_1", dateValue1)
Call Shell.Item.SetFieldValue("DATE_FIELD_2", dateValue1)

After the above code runs, the value of the DATE_FIELD_2 will display as "Error".  Looking in the database, the value is "1899-12-26 00:00:00.000"

This problem only happens if System Admin (System Admin > Options > Settings > Locale) and User Setting locale are BOTH set to "Slovenian (Solvenia)". Other locales may also have this problem, but this one was confirmed. The English locales (and others) do not appear to have this issue.


Workaround: Change the System Admin locale to be something other than "Slovenian (Solvenia)"
