If you find a solution, I'd like to know. I'm using Outlook and have the same problem. Others on the Crackberry forums are also have a similar problem and looking for a solution. Very frustrating to have "NONE" for due date changed to 2085 and all the "None" start dates changed as well.

I had this pretty annoying problem, too, because I usually don't put a due date on my to do items. I have found a very simple solution. It has worked for the past two weeks, so I'm pretty sure the problem is solved.
Blackberry Desktop Manager -> Synchronize -> Configuration tab -> Config synch... -> Tasks -> Configure -> Advanced Settings... -> Field Mapping: Now set the handheld "Start date" to NOT synchronize.
Why does this solve the problem?
On the blackberry, tasks don't have a start date. My guess is that Intellisync is finding a number it thinks is a start date, and that number is being converted into a strange start date in whatever Calendar program you are using. In Outlook, whenever a start date is AFTER the due date, the due date is set to be the same as the start date.
This is frustrating, because all RIM needs to do to fix this problem is change the default field mapping.
