That's a limitation of the date widget. It's a usability issue, so it deserves a bug report.

A workaround is to use the widget to select the day and month, and then change the year directly in the text box.

Fair enough. We do not have so many people to create that it would become painfull. Thanks to all. I cannot close this ticket as i'm genuine. But i have enough with your suggestions.

You should create a BUG report in launchpad for this issue.

I don't think it's a bug. Other year appear when I select 2003 (10 by 10). I thinks it's more a bad conception then a bug. See S@@D's answer.

Denis, this is right. It works as designed.

Hi, Its a kind of javaScript defined for this date selection widget it takes consideration of 10 Years at a time and then shows up or down 10 years further, since its not a kind of bug here but you may also change(customize with JS) it as per your need like 15 year or 20 year limitation.
