DateField only displays 100 year range

Hi folks


This is a little bizarre.   I have a user reporting a DateField in my app on their device only shows years between 1962-2062


Storm 9530 v5.0.0.328

Curve 8530  v5.0.0.508


I have a Bold 9700 v5.0.0.979 and I've scrolled the year back to 1695 and forward to 2280 and the field appeared able to go back/forward further.

The docs say nothing of a way to restrict the year to such a range, or at least not that I can see.

I'm even creating this field in a rather plain fashion:


        dob = new DateField();


        dob.setDate(new Date());


Has anyone run across this kind of odd behavior?
