the wanted results.

2. Match any of the following
3. The date is after 3/29/2003
4. Label the message: Important
5. Close filter edit window
6. Open test filter created


Actual Results:  
Date changes to 3/1/2003

Expected Results:  
Date should stay at 3/29/2003

Confirming. 
Additional behavior:  For a given month (I tested April & May),
Set filter day to 29 ... date becomes 1.
Set filter day to 30 ... date becomes 2.
Set filter day to 31 ... date becomes 3.  ...
Set filter day to 58 ... date becomes 30.
Set filter day to 59 ... date becomes 31 or next month, day 1 (depends on month).
Set filter day to 60 ... date becomes 1 (same month).

The important part of this is obviously when you set it to days 29, 30 or 31,
but the rest is interesting at the least.

I no longer have a 1.5 installation to test with, under 1.6b the date issue
appears to be fixed.  Updating to resolved.
