PolyMon Manager I18N issues

The graphs in PolyMon Manager have several internationalization (I18N) issues, the worst issue even makes it impossible to generate any graphs.

The Range selection boxes display the date as a ShortDate string as set in my culture (in this case 16-Apr-07),
however the Available text follows a different patern (in this case 04-16-2007) but should be a ShortDate string as well.

The graphs on the overview tab work, however when clicking Run on the Daily/Weekly/Monthly tabs I get the following error:
System.InvalidCastException: Conversion from string "04-16-2007 00:00:00" to type 'Date' is not valid.

The RunDaily/RunWeekly/RunMonthly functions seems to use the fixed date format string "MM/dd/yyyy",
which seems to be the cause of this problem.
(it's not clear to me why a DateTime is converted into a string and then back into a DateTime)
