Fix Date validation in Experimental branch
Date parsing/validation in textboxes is currently malfunctioning in the Experimental branch.
This can be seen in the Details pane, for (e.g.) birth and death dates.
As soon as the user starts typing an invalid date, the text changes to "01/01/0001". The textbox is correctly marked in red.
The text should not change, merely have the textbox go red. I have the theory of date validation correct but I've done something wrong.
The intent in the Experimental branch is to use the date parsing support from GEDCOM.Net. This ideally will provide us with better/more flexible date input, such as:
The current Family.Show date parsing is limited to full day/month/year dates.
