ValueBox["Date"] calls need to refer to a file, which is on my machine
/usr/localMathematica/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/TextResources/Locale.tr. My
distribution is 4.0 but I remember the same file exists in 3.0, if in a
different place.
Have a look at it, make a backup copy if you wish to edit it. You will need to
restart the FrontEnd to use it.
