Hm, this seems strange. I am using 4.1 and what happens is this:

Export["R:\\test.dat",
{{"2005-01-24", "2005-02-14"},
{ "2005-01-24", "2005-02-14"}}]

Import["R:\\test.dat"]
{{1980, 1989}, {1980, 1989}}

!! R:\\test.dat
2005-01-24   2005-02-14
2005-01-24   2005-02-14

In the Import case Mathematica seems to have actually evaluated those
cells as if they hadn't been strings, but integers.

In your case, it certainly seems to be a bug, though. How can two
identical list parts be exported/imported in a different way?
