Information about the "date format bug"

I got bug reports from two different users about problems to open part status items because the dates were invalid.
To make sorting easier Tracktimer uses the format yyyy-mm-dd for all dates in its tables. What happens is that when Windows XP returns from the screen saver it overwrites Tracktimers date format with the regional format which might be dd/mm/yyyy!
And now the string representation of a date cannot be transformed to "date" representation since the formats doesn't match anymore!

The quick fix if anyone has problems with this is to disable the screen saver until the next version is released. I am planning on showing all dates the way they are meant to be shown to make it even better.
Sorry for any problems this might have caused you.
