Date input fields don't respect date format settings

The input box next to calendar, shows always "YYYY-MM-DD" and doesn't follow the language settings.
This is very confusing at least in finnish language, because we never type it like that.

I tried a little change in caldendar-fi.js file:
Calendar._TT["DEF_DATE_FORMAT"] = "%Y-%m-%d"
Calendar._TT["DEF_DATE_FORMAT"] = "%d.%m.%Y"
Did not change the behaviour though :) The date format was still YYYY-MM-DD
Not really a programmer so no clue why the change didn't work. Anyways tried with several browsers so might need change to some other place to change the date format.

aah.. i tried those too, and some other tricks... but best I got was calendar-widget changing the field correctly (respecting dd-mm-yyyy) when I clicked a date.. but still, everytime I am adding new issue, or editing old one, the date in field gets defaulted in wrong order.
I dont know ruby, so after hour of going through sources I just gave up :)

Developers, you can indicate a better solution to fix this? I have a good experience with software development, but don't know the project classes and etc...
I would like help to solve this problem.

- File app_helpers_application_helper_rb.diff added
In attachment has one path to fix the function "calendar_for".
Do you know how works the function "text_field"? I need modify it to present correctly data recovery from database...

I see in the project the method "CustomFieldsHelper.custom_field_tag(name, custom_value)"...
What do you think about:
1. Implement in "CustomFieldsHelper.custom_field_tag" the conversion of value of text field?
2. Change all places how are using the component text_field and calendar_for to use new custom field?
You can help me with the opinion, I would like help to solve this old problem and send path to the project.
