Yup. Same thing on my Mac. The only way I could get something to work
was by converting the dates to AbsoluteTime like so:

Needs["PlotLegends`"]
ibm = FinancialData["IBM", {2000, 1, 1}];
msft = FinancialData["MSFT", {2000, 1, 1}];
ibm = Transpose[{AbsoluteTime /@ ibm[[All, 1]], ibm[[All, 2]]}];
msft = Transpose[{AbsoluteTime /@ msft[[All, 1]], msft[[All, 2]]}];
p1 = DateListPlot[{ibm, msft}, Joined -> True,
   PlotLabel -> "Apple vs. MicroSoft",
   FrameLabel -> {"Date", "Price (USD)"},
   PlotLegend -> {"APPL", "MSFT"}, LegendSize -> {0.5, 0.2},
   LegendTextSpace -> 6, LegendShadow -> None,
   LegendPosition -> {0, -0.4}];
Show[p1, ImageSize -> 470]

Cheers,

t.
