Why is date without separators not interpreted as date format of locale?

I use the Dutch / Nederlands locale. To save a few key strokes, I want to input a date like 01022014 instead of 01-02-2014. I expect OpenERP to interpret this as DDMMYYYY.

In every form with a date field I run into the same issue. As I save the form, OpenERP interprets the numbers as MMDDYYYY, regardless of locale. The date mentioned above will come out January 2nd instead of February 1st as intended. How can I make OpenERP see things my way?

Hello Arno,

We have the same problem. Do you have a solution for it?
